Sommer’s Authentic Camelback Bridge Closed Until Further Notice
January 21, 2022
BRIDGE CLOSURE (Mile 14.69) – Effective January 21st, 2022, Sommer’s Authentic Camelback Bridge (pedestrian use only) is closed until further notice for public safety due to structural deficiencies. One of the wooden truss members has deteriorated due to rot, allowing for the bracing shoe to slip free of its designated placement. This has placed more load weight on one truss than the other, causing the bridge to list slightly. Trail users should turn around at the bridge closure and NOT attempt to get by it – utilize other means to cross the canal to access the towpath. Do not pass underneath the bridge. Trail users can take an alternate path around the bridge abutment to continue along the designated towpath.
Sommer’s Bridge is located in Lower Makefield Township.
