In January, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park experienced a significant rockslide near towpath mile 155, just downstream of the Paw Paw Tunnel. While investigating the rockslide, numerous other large rock formations were discovered to be on the verge of collapse. Due to the potential threat of another significant rockslide in addition to the blockage, the towpath area downstream of the east portal of the tunnel will remain closed until the path can be cleared and the remaining rock stabilized.
