New Bridge on the Towpath Trail

A new bridge has been put in place on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail by the Stark County Park District. The bridge is between the Bridgeport Quarry and the Forty Corners Trailheads.

The upgraded steel truss structure is 63 ft. long and 10 ft. wide, replacing a metal open grate bridge. The improvement creates a safer, more accessible option for Towpath users, allowing for two lanes of pedestrian, pet, and bicycle traffic.
