On August 3, Draper City was hit with heavy rainfall that resulted in flooding.

All City and County resources have been dedicated to public road cleanup and access. Draper City Mayor Troy Walker declared a state of emergency due to flooding in order to receive additional aid. The City has coordinated with Salt Lake County Emergency Management for support with equipment to help clear roads. 

As of 11:20 AM on August 4, 1300 East, Highland Drive, and the Roundabout at Mike Weir Dr have reopened and are accessible. Bangerter Pkwy is now open for traffic, with one lane still closed going uphill. Please drive carefully through this area.
