Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail III

Today I stumbled upon the Mill Creek Aqueduct, one of two working viaducts remaining on the Ohio & Erie Canal. The aqueduct (the original was wood) allows the Canal to continue uninterrupted despite crossing natural waterways.

These wooden gates keep the canal from overflowing by allowing excess water to spill down into Mill Creek. (sepia)

Some barbed wire keeping folks from wandering onto an i-beam alongside the aqueduct. (sepia, macro)
