Blacktop Road Repair: New Lincoln road repair in Massachusetts

By James E. Bensinger | 06.06.17 02:23PM EDTThe Lincoln National Historic Site is working to restore some of the historic road sections that were damaged by a 2010 tornado in New England.

It was the site of the tornado that killed 18 people.

The restoration is being done by a team of state and federal officials including the National Weather Service, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the Boston Public Library and the Massachusetts State Police.

The project will cost about $4 million.

In the meantime, there will be some minor repair work done at the historic site and nearby towns.

The site is home to more than 100 historic buildings, including the State House, the Lincoln Memorial and the Commonwealth Hotel.

Lincoln was built in 1854 and is the nation’s oldest president.
