CORNING, Calif. -

A new skate park in Corning is under construction and by the looks of things, if weather permits it should be ready by late October. However, there were some concerns that were brought up about the pavement.

Some cracks were appearing in certain parts of the pavement, so the City of Corning had the construction company come out to the site to make sure the cracks were not serious.

According to Corning Public Works Director Patrick Walker, the cracks are not detrimental to the skate park, however he also said that the city will monitor the cracks closely.

"You can’t put this whole skate park in, in one pour, so what happens is when we pour next to another pour which sits for a while, there's gonna be some extra stress that’s going to have a small hairline crack on it,” said Walker.

The skate park is funded by a $4.2 million state grant. The City of Corning said that once the skate park is done, they hope they can have some skating competitions.
