Two PA/NJ Canal Loops Out of Commission
Thursday, October 4, 2018
The replacement of the Phillips’ Mill Bridge in New Hope and the repair of the River Road Bridge near the Golden Pheasant Inn in Erwinna have required that the Delaware Canal towpath be closed at these locations.
The towpath closure at Phillips’ Mill Bridge has disconnected the PA/NJ Canal Loop Trail that runs from New Hope, PA to Lambertville, PA to Stockton, NJ to Centre Bridge, PA.
The towpath closure at the “Golden Pheasant” Bridge has disconnected the Loop Trail from Lumberville, PA to Bull’s Island, NJ to Frenchtown, NJ to Uhlerstown, PA.
The detours around the closures are not recommended.
