Cianbro team members and subcontractors are wrestling with Mother Nature to repair the damage that decades of flooding along the Potomac River in Maryland have wrought upon the historic Chesapeake & Ohio Canal Towpath near Williamsport, Maryland. The historic path, once used by beasts of burden to tow barges along the waterway, is now a popular hiking trail. When Cianbro completes repairs to the Big Slackwater section of the towpath, the entire 185 miles of the landmark will be open to the public. Cianbro crews are fighting the same elements that brought about the damage in the first place, including severe water-level fluctuations. Team leaders discuss the progress crews have made toward a summer completion of the project.
