Towpath at Lock 7 to be closed for repairs

November 25, 2002

Due to emergency repairs on the historic waste weir at Lock 7 on the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park, the towpath in this area of the park will be completely closed to visitors Monday through Wednesday.

A serious seep has developed adjacent to the waste weir structure just upstream of Lock 7. Visitors will not be allowed to pass through the construction area at Lock 7.

Visitors should use caution on the towpath from Lock 5 to Lock 7 due to increased construction traffic. Warning signs are posted.
