"Traditionally in the Wichita Falls area after the fourth of july [hwy] 240 is a complete war zone of mess. It's really disgusting," said TxDOT P.I.O Adele Lewis.
And with the help of local law enforcement Highway 240 is not a war zone today.
Burkburnett P.D. deputies from the Wichita County Sheriff's office, and area fire fighters all patrolled the highway last night
Making sure Texomans celebrating on the road kept it clean.
TxDOT officials say the hard work paid off this year and credit the beefed up patrols for the cleaner road ways.
