Groundbreaking for the next leg of the Towpath Trail on tap for Saturday
For nearly forty years, restoration of the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail into a recreational and conservation area has been a topic of focus. The trail runs through the heart of the Ohio - from Cuyahoga, through Summit, Stark and Tuscarwas Counties. In Cleveland, work has been divided into four stages, beginning at the towpath's Harvard Road trailhead, going all the way to Canal Baskin Park, on the Cuyahoga River. A groundbreaking ceremony to mark the beginning of work on stage 3, which spans 1.9 miles between the northern entrance of Steelyard Commons to Literary Avenue in Tremont, is set for this Saturday.
