BRECKSVILLE, Ohio — Cuyahoga Valley National Park has closed approximately 1.5 miles of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail north of Station Road Bridge Trailhead in Brecksville through May 3, 5 a.m. Mondays through 6 p.m. Fridays. The trail will be open on weekends.

The closure is necessary for public safety while a contractor completes riverbank stabilization. No detour is available. The work in the Station Road area will be completed in two phases. Phase 1 includes the area north of Station Road. Details of Phase 2, south of Station Road, will be announced in 2024.

In 2022, the park announced $14 million in funding for a project received through the Great American Outdoors Act’s Legacy Restoration Fund to stabilize sites along the Cuyahoga River where erosion is threatening the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail and the tracks for the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.
