FEMA OKs $8m for repairs in Lincoln, Lebanon

The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency has awarded a total of $8 million to repair roads and bridges in Lincoln and Lebanon damaged during major storms, New Hampshire's delegation to Congress announced Friday.

"These New Hampshire communities have been devastated by severe storms and are still in need of assistance to rebuild," U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte and U.S. Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Ann McLane Kuster said in a joint statement. "This assistance will support critical rebuilding efforts in both Lincoln and Lebanon."

The grants will provide $4.7 million to repair a bridge in Lincoln damaged by Hurricane Irene in 2011 and $3.3 million to repair Slayton Hill Road in Lebanon, which was damaged by flooding last year.
