The New York State Canal Corporation today announced that boaters’ services are nearing full capacity on the Erie Canal between Lock E-8 (Scotia) and Lock E-17 (Little Falls). Only local vessel traffic will be passed through locks in this area until Lock E-17 reopens for navigation.
The Canal Corporation will soon announce a temporary operating schedule for Lock E-17 with instructions for mariners that will ensure all waiting to transit the eastern Erie Canal can do so in a timely, orderly manner.
Mariners needing assistance, should contact Ted Westerling at 518-461-0942.
