Workers will spend several weeks repairing cracks in an Ohio nuclear plant's concrete walls that protect its reactor.

FirstEnergy Corp. says its Davis-Besse nuclear plant along Lake Erie near Toledo will continue to operate during the work this fall.

The utility and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission both say consultants have determined that the cracks have not weakened the concrete shield building.
