FORSYTH COUNTY — The task likely will take months to complete, but Forsyth’s roads and bridges department will be picking up debris that fell on county right of way during the recent winter storms.

According to a news release from the county’s government, the two crews assigned to the task also will chip up the debris.

John Cunard, the county’s director of engineering, said in a statement that the project could take several months.

“This is certainly a large task, due to the amount of debris that fell, but we will work diligently until this cleanup effort is complete,” he said.  

The news release noted that the crews are targeting only county right of way and will not remove debris that has been shifted there from private property, where employees aren’t allowed to work.

To assist in determining what areas to visit, crews will consult records, photos and other documentation of roads that were cleared during the recent winter weather.

Motorists are urged to use caution when they see these crews working along county roads.
