Mon Forest to tackle 9 projects with Great American Outdoor Act funds


​Campground upgrades, bridge replacements, and repairs and improvements needed to ready an 80-foot fire tower for public use as a rental property will get underway during the current fiscal year in the Monongahela National Forest.

 Funding for the upcoming infrastructure projects is made possible by last year’s passage of the Great American Outdoors Act. The act provides $1.9 billion annually for each of the next five years to address a deferred maintenance issues in national forests, parks and wildlife refuges, along with public land administered by the Bureau of Land Management.
