Due to the construction of the Ohio Canal Interceptor Tunnel (OCIT), the Towpath Trail has been rerouted along Hickory Street, between Memorial Parkway and North Street, north of the Mustill Store.

This new route is more challenging. However, the safety of those using the Towpath has been the highest priority. Users can expect adequate maps and signs, indicating the new trail. 

Following construction, the Towpath will be routed to its original location along the Little Cuyahoga River.

The new route covers less than one mile of the 14-plus mile stretch of the Towpath that cuts through the City of Akron.
