HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - We have an update about a sinkhole problem on the east side of Big Spring Park in Huntsville. There's now a better timeline as to when you can expect the problem to be repaired.
Engineers have come up with proposals to fix the problem. The city expects to solicit bids to do the work within the next few weeks.
A large chain link fence is currently around the sinkhole to keep people away. City Administrator John Hamilton said engineers have been working on the solution.
"I expect it to go to contract within the next month or so, and hopefully by the end of September, you'll see the work going into control that flow of water," said Hamilton.
The completed project will have a new sidewalk and improved aesthetics for people who enjoy and use that part of Big Spring Park.
