Cecil Scenes – Chesapeake City and the C&D Canal

As you drive down Route 213 toward Chesapeake City, there is a fairly old, fairly gigantic, steel bridge that takes you across a relatively narrow waterway. How many folks know the name of the bridge? How many know the name of the waterway? Unless you are from the area or happened to learn about it in school, not many know the Chesapeake City Bridge crosses the C & D Canal.

Originally opened for business in 1829, the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal connects the Delaware River and the Chesapeake Bay. The 14-mile man-made waterway accounts for nearly 40% of all traffic at the Port of Baltimore and cuts nearly 300 miles off the water route from Philadelphia to Baltimore. The Chesapeake City Bridge is one of six crossings over the canal and serves as the gateway to much of Maryland’s horse country.

Check out some scenes sent to Cecil Scene by area photographer Elaine Kucharski. From the little tugboat guiding a gigantic cargo ship to the pup in Chesapeake City who decided to appoint herself guard dog, these are some lovely looks at Cecil County.
