Franklin Township Walk and Roll

Walk with Washington and Lee! August 27 is going to bring the French-American Alliance to several NJ towns with fun and educational events. Join us!

Canal Road will be closed to motorized vehicles between the Griggstown Causeway and Route 518 for Franklin’s summertime “Walk and Roll” event that encourages safe walking and bicycle riding along a 5-mile stretch of the Millstone Valley National Scenic Byway. The road closure for the Walk and Roll event will run from 10 am to 4 pm, while the reenactors are expected between noon and 3 pm.

The Millstone Valley Preservation Coalition operates a Visitor Center in the old Bridgetender’s House at 2 Griggstown Causeway in Franklin Township. It’s open from 1 to 4 pm weekends May to October. On August 28 it will be open while the road is closed to cars, from 10 to 4. During the closure Franklin Township Police will permit access by cars at reduced speed for people who live on that stretch of Canal Road.

The Millstone Valley National Scenic Byway is a 27-mile loop stretching from Route 27 in Kingston north to Amwell Road in Millstone Borough. It is a resource of the New Jersey and US Departments of Transportation.
