Vernal City Manager Quinn Bennion has positive news: Vernal City has secured the needed funds to move forward with a project to address flooding on Main Street. “During large storm events,” explains Bennion, “storm water overtops the curbs, runs onto the sidewalks and into downtown businesses. Partnering with UDOT, the project will be designed this Spring and constructed during summer 2019. The project involves replacement of the storm drain trunk line in Main Street from 900 West to 500 East and a new overflow line within 100 South.” UDOT has committed almost half of the $2.6 million to construct the project and Vernal City applied for and received an additional $1.2 million dollar grant from the Community Impact Board (CIB). Vernal City will match $200,000 in local funds. “This project is a significant investment into downtown Vernal,” shares Mayor Doug Hammond. “We want our downtown businesses to grow and succeed and to not worry about placing sandbags at their door when it rains.”
