The New York State Canal Corporation today announced that ongoing construction in the vicinity of Lock E-34/35 in the City of Lockport will require the temporary closure of a portion of the Canalway Trail adjacent to the lock facility.  This closure will begin today, Monday, Dec. 7, and is expected to continue until at least Friday, Dec. 11.

This portion of the Canalway Trail will be reopened as soon as conditions allow. 

The Canal Corporation appreciates the public’s patience while the repairs are being made.


The New York State Canal System is comprised of four historic waterways, the Erie, the Champlain, the Oswego and the Cayuga-Seneca Canals.  Spanning 524 miles, the waterways link the Hudson River, Lake Champlain, Lake Ontario, the Finger Lakes, Niagara River and Lake Erie with communities rich in history and culture. For more information about the New York State Canal System, vacation opportunities and events call 1-800-4CANAL4 or visit
