    Sample sentence:
    "Precaución, probablemente se están haciendo trabajos para corregir un desnivel en el puente..."

    How can I translate the highlighted words?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's probably not a "paso a desnivel" (overpass) but a "desigualdad" (unevenness). But I hope a Spanish speaker will confirm or correct..

    Probably they are working to correct an unevenness / irregularity in the surface of the bridge.
    (This means the roadbed, perhaps, but we don't have that context.).

    Frida-nc got it right! Yo diría también "difference in level"
