The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail is closed at SR 224 in Akron, today through Nov. 22. An under-the-trail pipe for Cargill Salt is being replaced. The work is expected to take up to three weeks, weather permitting.
The trail is impassible at this location during the non-park project. Signs will be posted to alert visitors at the two closest trailheads: the Wilbeth Road Trailhead, 392 W. Wilbeth Road, Akron to the north, and the Manchester Road Trailhead (2740 Manchester Road, Akron) to the south.

There are 41 miles of the multipurpose Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in Summit County. Metro Parks manages half of that distance, from the southern boundary of Cuyahoga Valley National Park to the Stark County line, except about three miles in Akron.
