Construction to Close Delaware Canal Towpath

Construction to replace the Phillips Mill bridge in Solebury Township will require closing the canal towpath between Lower Limeport Bridge and the pedestrian bridge at Canal Park. The trail closure will remain in effect until the project is completed in the spring of 2019. Thru-travelers may exit the towpath at Lower Limeport bridge (Hal Clark Park) onto River Road and re-enter via the Malcom Crooks bridge in Canal Park, Solebury Twp ( and vice versa). This closure is for public safety due to heavy machinery and vehicles that will be accessing the bridge via the towpath.
