Missouri state employees volunteer to aid Florida in rebuilding infrastructure

More than 50 employees from the Missouri Department of Transportation left Sikeston yesterday morning to assist Florida in cleanup efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The teams, comprised entirely of volunteer workers, are prepared to stay in Tallahassee, Fla. for up to two weeks. Special Assignments Coordinator Bob Brendel says the teams will mainly be focused on cleaning up roadways and restoring transportation to the area.

In addition, Missouri State Parks teams will work with Florida's state parks, 168 of which have been closed due to storm damage.
