Some roads in downtown Waco are a lot safer this year than last year.
You might remember the sinkholes that formed in the area after storms last spring.
Public Works Director Chuck Dowdell said part of a pipe, that runs to the Lake Brazos Dam gave way, causing some of the sinkholes.
He said crews had to do emergency repairs on 96-feet of it.
They finished in December. He said it cost the city more than $245,000.
Now, that they're all done, Dowdell said the fix will allow water to flow without clogging or eroding the pipe.
