NOTICE TO MARINERS
LOCK CLOSURES – CENTRAL ERIE AND CAYUGA/SENECA CANALS
JULY 16, 2021
The New York State Canal Corporation today announced that Erie Canal locks E-24 (Baldwinsville) and E-25 (Mays Point) and Cayuga/Seneca Canal Lock C/S-1 (Cayuga) are closed to navigation due to high water levels and high flows from recent heavy rainfall until further notice.
These areas of the Canal system will reopen as water flows recede and conditions become safe for navigation to resume.
These closures are in addition to the closure of the Oswego Canal (Locks O-1 in Phoenix to Lock O-8 in Oswego).
The Canal Corporation urges all users to register to receive updates through the “Notice to Mariners” notification program at www.canals.ny.gov.
