NOTICE TO MARINERS
UPDATE ERIE CANAL – SPENCERPORT TO HOLLEY
MAY 16, 2021
The New York State Canal Corporation today announced that the Holley guard gate will close this morning, Sunday, May 16th. This closure, in addition to the earlier closure of the Brockport and Spencerport guard gates, will allow the Canal Corporation to lower the Erie Canal’s water level as engineers and contractors work to mitigate localized seepage occurring west of the Smith Street Bridge in the Village of Brockport. Updates will be provided as the mitigation and repair work progresses.
