HAMILTON TWP., N.J. (WPVI) --Work is set to begin soon on repairing more than a dozen elementary school playgrounds in Mercer County, New Jersey.
In September, the Hamilton school district closed the playgrounds because of safety concerns.
They found the equipment had cracks and loose bolts coming from them.
The district has agreed to pay more than 480 thousand dollars to repair and upgrade the playgrounds.
The interim Superintendent hopes the playgrounds will reopen by late spring.
