The Incline Plane is closed for a rehabilitation project, during which we will be replacing a multitude of things, including mechanical mechanisms, electrical mechanisms and structural pieces of the Incline. The Incline will also be repainted, the windows will undergo a glazing project and the signs at the Incline will be revamped. The Inclined Plane has not undergone such a large rehabilitation project since 1983, and prior to that it's largest project was its opening in 1891. The Incline is a wonderful piece of history, that played an important role in rebuilding our town after two major floods, and we believe that the Incline is worthy of preservation and we want to ensure that the Incline is safe for generations to come
The Incline is set to reopen some time in Spring 2023.
