Roosevelt City State Street Drainage Project

Roosevelt City’s State Street doesn’t have long to wait before drainage issues are handled head on. According to Roosevelt City Manager Ryan Snow, a project will get underway next fall to install improved drainage down Roosevelt’s State Street funded almost entirely by UDOT through the Joint Highway Commission. Many Roosevelt residents are still dealing with the cleanup following last month’s flooding and while it doesn’t look glamorous, Snow says the sandbags will remain in place on State Street for now as a precaution. “We don’t know what the rest of the year looks like so we are going to be slow to move those, “explains Snow. “We don’t expect another big storm but no one predicted how big the last one would be either.” The funding for the State Street drainage project is available October 1st and that is when Roosevelt City expects to start construction.
