Due to CSX crossing repairs, September 10 to September 17, 2013.
The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal (C&O Canal) National Historical Park will temporarily close vehicle access to the Point of Rocks Boat Ramp and Point of Rocks parking area from September 10 to September 17, 2013. The closure is necessary to allow CSX repair of the railroad crossing.
Visitors can still park along the access road before the railroad crossing to access the C&O Canal or the Potomac River but are asked to use caution when they encounter the temporary construction area.
Visitors seeking boat ramp access should use nearby locations: Lander Boat Ramp, approximately 2 miles upstream, and Noland Ferry Boat Ramp, approximately 3 miles downstream.
