Part of C&O towpath to be closed



C&O Canal National Historical Park will temporarily lower the water in the canal in Georgetown beginning Sunday. The water will be lowered in order to repair a leak in the canal at the Whitehurst Freeway.

The towpath will be closed for construction from 31st Street (Milepost 0.59) to the Alexandria Aqueduct (Milepost 1.07). Towpath users will be diverted to Water Street to bypass the closure.

The detour is expected to be in effect for two weeks.
