BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The final stages in repairs for 26th Street, taken out in a partial collapse in November, is set to cost taxpayers $7.5 million.

City leaders said they are working to remove and replace the retaining wall and sidewalk that had started to buckle.

However, neighbors said they want the city to build a park instead.
