WOODY’S BRIDGE AREA (MILE 54): The trail is CLOSED just north of Woody’s Camelback Bridge due to a partial collapse of the towpath on Nov 10. Trail users should turn around at the closure and NOT attempt to get by it, as the collapse may be prone to expanding and undercutting. Canal water has been lowered to reduce any further erosion.
LOCK 22&23/TEDDY ROOSEVELT RECREATION AREA (MILE 53): The towpath is CLOSED just north of Lock 22/23 at Teddy Roosevelt Recreation Area due to an emergency stabilization repair of a subcanal culvert. This project began around January 11 and is expected to be completed around mid-February, barring any unexpected issues.
This section of trail connects Northampton County’s Wy-Hit-Tuk Park to Theodore Roosevelt Recreation Area. The D&L Trail passes the town of Raubsville (there are stairs that you have to go over when crossing Raubsville Rd) and Lock 23 (Raubsville Lock) and Lock 22 (Groundhog Lock) through this section. This section is part of over 50 miles of the D&L Trail designated as National Recreation Trail within Delaware Canal State Park from Easton to Bristol near Philadelphia. For more information specific to the D&L Trail along the Delaware Canal please refer to the Delaware Canal State Park and Friends of the Delaware Canal websites.
