The Delaware and Raritan Canal (D&R Canal) is a canal in central New Jersey, United States, built in the 1830s that served to connect the Delaware River to the Raritan River. It was intended as an efficient and reliable means of transportation of freight between Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New York City, especially coal from the anthracite coal fields in eastern Pennsylvania. Before the advent of the railroads, the canal allowed shippers to cut many miles off the route from the Pennsylvania coal fields, down the Delaware, around Cape May, and up along the (occasionally treacherous) Atlantic Ocean coast to New York City.

  • Der Raritan and Delaware Canal ist ein etwa 106 Kilometer langer Kanal in New Jersey (USA), der den Raritan River bei New Brunswick mit dem Delaware River bei Bordentown verbindet. Er wurde von 1830 bis 1834 erbaut und war bis 1932 in Betrieb, über einen aus nördlicher Richtung angeschlossenen Seitenkanal bei Trenton wurde er zusätzlich mit Wasser gespeist. Im Jahre 1974 wurden große Abschnitte des Kanals zu einem State Park deklariert.
