It will take until April but the lower dam in Colliery Dam Park will finally be finished.

Initial estimates for the project pegged it at costing anywhere between 2 point 8 and 4 point 6 million dollars.

Once the work is done in April, the bridge over the spillway will be operational and the trail reopened.
