CAMPTON, N.H. - The White Mountain National Forest has received $2 million in federal funding. 

A press release says the funding will help repair roads and bridges damaged by Hurricane Irene. 

“Heavy rain from Hurricane Irene significantly damaged roads in the White Mountains,” Shea-Porter said. “This funding will ensure that Slippery Brook Road, Rocky Branch Road, and East Branch Road can be returned to good condition and remain safe for travelers.”

Work will be done on Forest Service Route 17 (Slippery Brook Road) includes riprap installation, ditch repair, and road slide repair. Work on Forest Service Road 27 (Rocky Branch Road) and 38 (East Brand Road) includes bridge replacement. 

No word on when the repairs will begin.
