Miami & Erie Canal
—How Does a Canal Cross a Creek? —The Twin Arch stone culvert was constructed in 1837 as part of the "extension" of the original Miami and Erie Canal which ran from Dayton to Piqua. The purpose of the Twin Arch was to carry stream water from the Howell Ditch under the Miami and Erie Canal into the Great Miami River. The segment of the Miami and Erie Canal, which incudes the Twin Arch stone culvert, began construction in the early 1830's to complete the link between the Ohio River and Lake Erie. This canal, one of the older artificial avenues of transportation, provided access for the movement of goods throughout the region, and encouraged the development of many of today's significant communities in western Ohio.
