Several projects in The Wayne National forest have received nearly $2.7 million for infrastructure repairs. 

The funds are part of a larger pool of federal money awarded to the USDA Forest Service Eastern Region.
Seven bridges will be replaced or installed in Lawrence, Scioto and Hocking counties.
A road repair and retaining wall will be constructed in the Lake Vesuvius Recreation Area.
After the work is done, the Big Bend Swimming Beach area will reopen to the public.
Three different companies based in Ohio and Kentucky will manage the project.
Most of the projects are to be completed in 2012, except for a campground reconstruction project which will be finished in 2013.
