$2M grant to N.H. forest to help post-Irene repairs
CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - The White Mountain National Forest is getting a $2 million grant from the Federal Highway Administration to help repair roads and bridges damaged by Tropical Storm Irene.
The road, ditch and bridge work is for Slippery Brook Road, Rocky Branch Road and East Branch Road.
The roads were damaged in August 2011 by heavy rains and flash floods that resulted from Tropical Storm Irene.
New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter announced the grant Monday. Shea-Porter is scheduled to meet with hikers and tour the forest with Applachian Mountain Club President John Judge on Friday.
