A temporary bicycle and pedestrian detour is in effect for the C&O Canal towpath above Hancock from the Polly Pond waste weir structure to Lock 55 through June 12.

The detour is not handicapped accessible and requires park visitors to walk approximately 20 stairs and to use a steep earthen ramp.

The detour is necessary while work is under way to stabilize the historic waste weir structure and to install a new outflow structure to handle large storm events with minimal impact to park resources.

For information, contact Dan Copenhaver, park engineer, at 301-745-5818.
