Clinton Weeks Street Hazard Mitigation Project 2022

City of Clinton
Program Area:
Flood Mitigation and Recovery Program
County of Applicant:

The City of Clinton experiences frequent flooding along Weeks Street, including three major flooding events in 2021. During flooding events along Weeks Street, emergency vehicles are unable to access residences and surrounding roads (including Highway 24) are overtopped. A 2020 preliminary drainage feasibility study found that flooding is likely caused by an undersized pipe system with minimal elevation change. Currently, the existing drainage route runs along Weeks Street into the drainage route from Smithfield Packing Company. Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds will be used to reroute the existing drainage system into a separate path to cross Highway 24 and into an existing farm ditch. Additional curb inlets and reinforced concrete pipe will be installed to support the design. City and other funds will be used to improve the existing farm ditch which currently collects runoff. Households in the project area and vehicles traveling on adjacent roads will benefit from this project.
