(Georgetown, Del) - A DelDOT convoy is headed to Florida. They left on Monday Afternoon from Georgetown headed to Tallahassee to assist in the clean-up effort following Hurricane Irma.
25 Maintenance & Operations employees volunteered to deploy to Florida for up to 15 days to provide assistance in debris removal with loaders, chainsaws, and skid steers.
"Delaware was proud to be among the states offering assistance to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma," said Governor John Carney. "I'm grateful to the state employees and members of the National Guard who are serving our neighbors in Texas, South Carolina, and Florida as they begin the recovery process."
The State of Florida will reimburse DelDOT for expenses incurred by DelDOT in this effort. DelDOT also has a team of bridge inspectors on standby who may also depart to Florida in the following days to evaluate bridges impacted by the hurricane.
