Sycamore Island Bridge Closed On C&O Canal

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park says it’s closing a pedestrian bridge near Bethesda due to structural damage from a fallen tree.

Park officials said Tuesday that the Sycamore Island Bridge will reopen after repairs and inspections. They offered no timetable for the work.

The bridge steel truss bridge had new decking installed during a two-month closure last fall.

The park service says the bridge dates to the early 1900s.  It provides access from MacArthur Boulevard to Sycamore Island.
