BEAUFORT, S.C. –  (Aug. 31, 2023) Public Works Director Nate Farrow, after surveying the major thoroughfares of the City early this morning, said his crews are working to clear debris in public roadways and rights-of-way throughout today and tomorrow. He has found no major blockage of ditches and drains – which Public Works cleaned out before Tropical Storm Idalia came through on Aug 30. He said there is very little water accumulation on City streets.

Yesterday, even during the storm, Public Works worked with SCDOT crews to remove fallen trees and limbs on Robert Smalls Parkway and public rights-of-way in residential areas. 

 A few power outages remain as of the time of this release, to include the traffic light at First Boulevard and Ribaut Road. Drivers are asked to use caution and to treat this non-functional signal as a four-way stop. 

Capital Waste Services is picking up trash and recycling for its Wednesday routes today (Thursday). It will pick up the Thursday routes on Friday, and complete Friday routes on Saturday.

As a reminder, the Public Works Department will do a one-time sweep in the City of Beaufort to pick up excess yard debris caused by the storm beginning Tuesday, Sept. 5, through Friday, Sept. 8.

Yard debris must be placed next to the roadway by Tuesday morning, Sept. 5. Do not put the debris near or next to utility boxes or poles, fire hydrants, or under tree canopies. The department’s knuckle boom truck must be able to reach the debris.
