DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Football games at Albany's Hugh Mills stadium in the rain have left some people wet because of leaks near the concession stand.

The problem also affects locker rooms and training rooms but it will soon be fixed.

Wednesday, the school board accepted a construction bid to take off the bleachers and spray a surfacing over the top of all the concrete.  

"This will solve all of our water issues over there," said facilities director Bob Fowler. "We are really looking forward to doing it because it will be a big improvement to our stadium. It's something we can do during the football season."

The project will start in the next few weeks and take about two months to complete. 

Facilities staff will work around the football schedule so there will be no interference with games.
