Two Towpath Closures in Tinicum Township
Wednesday, May 6, 2020
From Devin Buzard, Delaware Canal State Park Manager –
We are anticipating an approximate 2 week (1 weekend) closure at the Uhlerstown Covered Bridge beginning May 11. This is for the bridge restoration crew, working for the County of Bucks, to safely work on the metal substructure.
In addition to Uhlerstown, it has come to my attention that towpath at the Tinicum Aqueduct has been fully closed for approximately 5 days, and it is anticipated that this closure with no detour will be in effect until the end of July.
This closure is required in order to sandblast and paint the metal structure of the aqueduct and foot bridge as well as to replace the decking and metal railing. This area presents a very high danger for injury or death to anyone attempting to enter the posted/restricted construction site. There is no safe detour for this closure and all towpath traffic must turn around.
