Towpath Trail Detour Update 8/25 (Akron): The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail between Bartges and the AES Building will be detoured from August 28, 2023 to September 4, 2023. The temporary detour is needed so that contractors can safely remove an old aerial utility crossing the Towpath and Canal. The detour path will start at the Bartges trailhead to S Main Street, and then back to the Towpath from the path between the AES building and Spaghetti Warehouse. Signs will be posted for the detour. If you have any questions, please contact Mike Wytrzyszczewski with the City of Akron at 330-812-7552.
