BENEFITING: Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition
On Tuesday, April 19 vandals severely damaged the floating bridge north of Wilbeth Road in Akron, Ohio by setting fire to a forty foot section of the popular Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. Since then, we have been working in partnership with Summit Metro Parks and the City of Akron to access the damage and to develop a plan for repairs.
With the investigation now closed, Summit Metro Parks is working to construct a temporary repair to the floating bridge that should be in place by Friday, May 6.
We are coordinating the long-term repair of the floating bridge with the City of Akron.
All proceeds will go towards the floating bridge repair.
