More than $19 million was spent to rebuild the Big Slackwater section of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park near Williamsport, a massive project along the Potomac River that involved 121 columns bolted into rock to support elevated walkways. Bradley Clawson, chief ranger for the C&O Canal, thought the new concrete spans would be popular among fishermen. But Clawson said he never imagined the problem that has cropped up on the new section. People have been building fires on the walkway, and one of the blazes was so big that it damaged the surface of the walkway, leaving a pothole in the path.
