Manayunk Towpath Reopening Expected in 2 Weeks

by | September 27, 2021 | News | 0 comments

Good news: The City of Philadelphia has informed us that the Manayunk Tow Path, between Lock Street and Shawmont Avenue is expected to open back up to pedestrians and people on bicycles in two weeks.

As you may recall, the Tow Path got decimated during Hurricane Ida, which caused flash flood, tornadoes and destruction throughout the Northeastern United States. The Schuylkill River Trail was severely damaged due to the floods in Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties, leading to closures of the path and street detours. The tow path was particularly messed up in the storm and largely un-passable in the aftermath. It’s been closed for close to a month.

To be clear, the two-week timeframe (which would put the opening at October 11th) is not a guarantee, but the City is working to get the path open and this is the expected timeframe.

The path in Montgomery County is still closed, as well. We will have updates on reopening as we get them.
