NCDOT to Pick Up Storm Debris

ORANGE COUNTY, NC (March 10, 2014)—Orange County is announcing the NC Department of Transportation will collect storm debris from properties located on DOT maintained roads in the County, including subdivisions.
Pickup will begin sometime next week, so residents have plenty of time to gather debris.
Residents are asked to place ONLY vegetative storm debris at the edge of the pavement and backside of the ditch. Please be sure not to place debris too close to the road as this will pose a safety hazard.
The County encourages residents to place debris next to the road instead of burning it. This can result in wildfires, air pollution, etc. Wildfire season begins next week.
The DOT waiver only applies to Orange, Alamance, and Guilford Counties.
The pick-up service will not apply to residents who live within the limits of the Towns of Hillsborough, Chapel Hill and Carrboro, only for those in the non-incorporated portions of Orange County.
The County is also working with North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) and Orange County Solid Waste to manage the debris pickup.
Orange County is also working with NCEM to assess the damage, attempting to qualify for federal disaster assistance, which would benefit the local governments and schools. This would allow the County to receive hazard mitigation grants to help prepare for future disasters.
If residents have an unmet need, such as downed trees, food, or any other non- emergency request, please call the Information Line at 919.245.6111.

Traffic being stopped on Hwy 70A

I’m hearing that traffic is being detoured away from 70A between Elizabeth Brady Rd and Meadowlands Dr. (the hill- don’t you know) An alternate route would be to exit I-85 and turn R on 86, then L at the light at Old NC 10. From there, travel about a mile and then L on Lawrence Rd. That will bring you back to the 4-way stop at 70A. A Left will bring you back to the opposite end of Meadowlands Dr. Be careful out there!

More Weather Worries! PHE will have a two-hour delay this morning. Get here when you can. Be safe. Check back frequently for status update.
