Notice to Mariners
Erie Canal – Clyde
October 11, 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 15.43 feet. It is anticipated that clearances in this area will return to normal with the next 24 hours.
Chart 14786 E-2 covering the affected area can be found at http://www.canals.ny.gov/navinfo/charts/14786e02.png.
