Project: 
Morris Canal Greenway Feasibility Study

The Morris Canal originally extended from Pennsylvania to the New York/New Jersey harbor and served as a primary means of transporting goods in the region before railroads became a popular transportation means. The Morris Canal Greenway Feasibility Study examined ways to repurpose the Morris Canal as a cross-county greenway to connect communities throughout Passaic County, N.J., and link environmental, recreational, economic and historic resources.
