MARSHALL COUNTY, Md.
(AP) A park near Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay reopened Tuesday after heavy rain and floodwaters inundated the historic district.
The park, located in the heart of downtown Alexandria, reopened about 4:30 p.m. after nearly a week in disrepair.
The Maryland Historical Society’s museum was the only part of the park that was closed, but a large parking garage was also closed.
The museum was still open.
The National Park Service says it is continuing to monitor the flooding.
More than 6 inches of rain fell in Maryland on Tuesday.
A state judge last week ruled the park is safe, but the park’s restoration will be dependent on the water level.
A judge also set the $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the case.
In May, the National Park System declared the Chesapeake Gorge Park as a National Natural Landmark and said the National Mall would be open to the public through July 15.
