National park, Air Force museum among Ohio sites expected to reopen after government shutdown


BRECKSVILLE, Ohio — Ohio sites closed during the partial shutdown of the federal government will begin welcoming back visitors after Congress approved a measure to end the closures.

Visitor centers, restrooms and other areas at Cuyahoga Valley National Park in northeast Ohio are back in service. The park south of Cleveland encouraged runners and bicyclists to return to its trails today. A statement from the park’s chief ranger says the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad also is resuming operations.

In southwest Ohio, WHIO-TV in Dayton reports the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force also was expected to reopen today. The facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base had been open only one day since the shutdown began Oct. 1.
