The Monocacy Aqueduct is an icon for the Canal and region capturing a piece of local history integral to the nation’s history, the history of transportation, and representing an early 19th c. engineering feat.
Other C & O Canal Structures
Conococheaque Aqueduct: built in 1834, lost its upstream wall for the third and final time in 1920, presenting yet another obstacle to continued use of the canal.
Our work included surveys to provide physical analysis and condition assessment, structural analysis and calculations, and resulted in repair recommendations and alternatives to retain the aqueduct's historic features and fabric.
Restoration of the aqueduct began in 2016.
