Laravel 5 Route variable has space

I have some code in a controller called SearchController and I redirect to a route with some variables that were defined. The city variable has the spaces removed and a dash added for when the city has two words(ex:Des Moines). That would return “des-moines”. I did this because in the URL it was showing up as “des+monies”. But after changing that. The route does seem to know what to do or it breaks. So how can I tell the route that the {city} can also be things like “des-moines” instead of having “des+moines”. Or is there a better way of doing this.

Url I want(but breaks and gets error):

SearchController(cut down version):

$city = strtolower(preg_replace('/s+/', '-', $data[0]->City));
$state = strtolower($data[0]->State);
$provider = strtolower($data[0]->{'Provider Name'});
$zipcode = $data[0]->{'Zip Code'};

return redirect()->route('search.provider1',[$city,$state,$zipcode])->with('data',$data);


Route::get('{city}-{state}-provider1-{zipcode}',['uses' => '[email protected]','as' => 'search.provider1']);


NotFoundHttpException in RouteCollection.php line 161:
