Boston Marathon Finish Line Area Reopens

BOSTON (AP) — The area near the Boston Marathon finish line is reopening to the general public.

Traffic is allowed to flow all the way down Boylston Street today for the first time since two explosions on April 15 killed three spectators and injured more than 260.

Workers at some businesses and hotels in the area were allowed to return to their jobs yesterday to prepare for reopening.

But some stores directly affected by the blasts are still boarded up.

The Copley subway station has also reopened, and the main branch of the Boston Public Library is also reopening today.
