BOSTON - The lives of Bostonians are starting to get back to normal following the bombing at the marathon last Monday.

The section of Boylston Street near the Marathon finish line is now open to the public for the first time since last week's attack.

Crews worked through the night to repair the section of sidewalk damaged in the twin blasts.

Meanwhile, in Washington lawmakers are asking tough questions about how the government tracked the suspected bombers.

The FBI briefed a closed session of Congress yesterday.

Lawmakers have been critical of the way government agencies tracked Tamerlan Tsarnaev after he traveled to Russia last year. Some senators are saying government agencies may not have cooperated enough to prevent the attack. However, other senators have praised the way agencies have come together during the investigation.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police.

His brother, Dzhokhar, is in fair condition in a Boston hospital and is answering questions from investigators.
