Stabilizing the riverbank for continued access

Rivers naturally erode the soil along their banks. Having infrastructure like the Towpath Trail and railroad next to the river makes it challenging to maintain them. The good news is that CVNP received funding from the Great American Outdoors Act’s Legacy Restoration Fund to stabilize eight locations along the Cuyahoga River. Work began in 2023 and is expected to continue through 2028. For more information check out our news release. Expect closures of the Towpath Trail as we complete the work at each site.
