An approximately 1-mile stretch of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail is set to close soon, and the closure may be for as long as four years. The affected section is between the Mustill Store and the Memorial Parkway, just north of downtown Akron. The closure is being done by the city of Akron for the construction of a $184 million sewer tunnel.
Fortunately, the city is taking steps to provide a safe detour using a marked route on local streets.
