Bridge holds up to troubled waters

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The sign at the north end of the Price River Trail proved to be entirely accurate Monday night at about 9:30 p.m. as a 10-foot surge of water roared down the river and over the foot bridge at end of the trail. City Public Works Director Gary Sonntag said engineers anticipated occasional flooding and the trail was reinforced at this point to withstand the rushing water. The arrow shows the high level of the water where it passed under the 100 North overpass near JB's Restaurant. While the water did no damage to the pedestrian trail, it did deposit a thick layer of chocolate-colored mud. A Public Works crew managed to get the trail hosed off by mid-morning. The flood probably originated with a cloudburst in the drainage above Gordon Creek earlier in the evening. The creek added its flow to the water already in the river.
