SAND SPRINGS, Oklahoma -- The City of Sand Springs is set to repair a spillway at the Sand Springs Lake Dam before the spring rainy season begins.

Crews will repair a hole beneath the concrete spillway, which was discovered during a routine inspection of the dam the city said.

The project will begin at the end of February and take about two months to complete. Danny Wright Dozer and Pipeline Inc. of Hinton were awarded the $200 thousand project.

Although there was no imminent safety threat, a bridge that carries a pedestrian trail across the spillway was closed last fall as a precautionary measure, according to the City.
