Historic Site Master Plan & Feasibility Study, Design and Contract Documents
Lock 2 East was one of 24 traditional locks within the Morris Canal system, which spanned Northern New Jersey in a general east-west direction between Newark and Phillipsburg. Lock 2 East overcame an 8-foot elevation change and today the site hosts one of only a handful of sections of the canal prism that reflects its historic appearance.
Connolly and Hickey prepared a Historic Site Master Plan for the site which has helped to guide the restoration of the lock (by the Borough of Wharton and ______Engineer) as well as will guide the restoration and rehabilitation of the Lock Tender’s House and other site features.
