SR 507 Crosswalk Update

As of 12pm on 1/25/2024, the school zone crossing signage located on SR 507 near Roy City Hall will be down due to mechanical part replacements needed. The sign will remain placed, but the flashing beacon will not be utilized while replacement parts are being retrieved. We anticipate this being remedied and the signage being operational no later 1/31/2024.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes and rest assured we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety and security of our school age children and community members who utilize this crosswalk.
