The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) reminds the
public that contractors are continuing debris removal associated with Hurricane
Matthew. Residents should exercise extreme caution near debris piles this
Debris piles on the public right-of-way are a safety hazard for
pedestrians and trick-or-treaters. These piles may obstruct sight-lines for
motor vehicles traveling along the roadways. They may contain sharp objects
such as broken limbs and wood debris, or harbor snakes and pests. SCDOT urges
parents not to allow children to play on or around debris piles and avoid areas
where large quantities of debris are piled for collection.
SCDOT and its contractors are working as quickly as possible to
collect debris. SCDOT asks all residents to make personal safety a top priority
as our state continues its recovery from Hurricane Matthew.
SCDOT and its contractors are working to remove storm debris in the
following counties: Berkeley, Clarendon,
Colleton, Darlington, Dillon, Dorchester, Florence, Georgetown, Hampton, Horry,
Jasper, Lee, Marion, Marlboro, Orangeburg, Sumter and Williamsburg.
