Towpath has partial closure

The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath is closed on weekdays for 1.5 miles heading north, starting at Station Road Bridge in Brecksville. The trail will be open on weekends.

The closure, which will be in effect until early May, is due to contractors stabilizing the banks of the Cuyahoga River where erosion was threatening the Towpath Trail and the tracks of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. No detour is available.

The work is paid for through $14 million in funding from the Great American Outdoors Act’s Legacy Restoration Fund to stabilize sites along the Cuyahoga River. ∞
