Notice to Mariners
Erie Canal – Clyde
October 1, 2015
Mariners are advised of lower than published overhead clearances due to a temporarily higher than usual water surface level on the western Erie Canal between Lock E-26 (Clyde) and Lock E-27 (Lyons). The lowest bridge on this section of canal is Bridge E-93 (railroad). The air draft under this bridge is currently 15.23 feet. It is anticipated that clearances in this area will return to normal with the next 96 hours, barring additional rainfall.
Chart 14786 E-2 covering the affected area can be found at http://www.canals.ny.gov/navinfo/charts/14786e02.png.
