Areas of Rowlett completely closed for debris removal

(ROWLETT, TX – Dec. 28, 2015 – 1:15pm) The City of Rowlett is in “recovery mode”. Crews with heavy machinery are removing debris and vehicles from streets and rights-of-way. Currently, the areas labeled 242 and 244 on this map are completely closed to the public. Only residents already in their homes in these areas will be allowed to stay while these areas are cleared.

This information will be updated as soon as the areas are back open, but again, the curfew is still in place so only those residents with homes in these areas will be allowed access even at that point.
