River Road to close April 12, 13, for maintenance

BUSHKILL - River Road, in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, from the southern boundary near Hialeah Picnic Area in Middle Smithfield Township to Park Headquarters in Bushkill will be closed from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm on April 12 and 13 for annual routine road maintenance.   It will re-open each afternoon. 

Work will begin at the south end of River Road and progress northward toward Park Headquarters.   Access to the McDade Trail from River Road will be limited while work is completed.  Hikers and cyclists may access the trail at Hialeah Picnic Area or Park Headquarters during this time.  

“Doing this type of preventative maintenance makes the road safer for everyone that uses it and safety is a top priority for the National Park Service,” said Superintendent John Donahue.
