Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park began construction of a new pavilion in the picnic area Tuesday.
During construction, access to some parking areas and picnic tables will be restricted to ensure visitor safety.
The construction is expected to be complete in May.
“We appreciate the public’s patience as we work to improve this area,” said Superintendent Bill Justice. “The project will help to meet accessibility needs and provide an improved place for visitors to enjoy a picnic or a family reunion.”
