MORGAN -- One of Morgan County's newest roads was under 4 inches of floodwater Wednesday as the nearby Weber River overflowed its banks.
County crews operated loaders to pile dirt along the sides of Fairgrounds Parkway to protect the new infrastructure recently constructed between Morgan County Fairgrounds and Round Valley Golf Course.
No structures were threatened by the water, said Jason Lee, public information officer with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office.
Fairgrounds Parkway and a new bridge were completed in January as a primary entrance to the proposed Rivala development.
Developers Morgan Valley Partners and Wentworth Development plan an upscale development with 561 units and a Johnny Miller-designed golf course.
Both the developer and the county threw money at the new road and bridge, which is designed to lessen traffic on 100 South, an alternate entrance to the development.
According to Terry Turner, Morgan County emergency management director, flooding in the area is not unusual, and, in fact, is "pretty typical."
Water also was lapping at the sides of the Croydon bridge Wednesday. However, county crews used track hoes to remove log jams and alleviate the threat of damage to the bridge or road, Turner said.
County staff is "keeping an eye" on flooding in the county, monitoring water levels and relying on residents to call in with any reports of flooding or threatened structures.
The Golden Spike Scramble golf tournament is one Morgan event affected by flooding.
The scramble, previously scheduled for Sunday at Round Valley Golf Course, has been postponed until further notice.
