Erie Canal – Amsterdam
September 17, 2021
Mariners are advised that an inspection of the Amsterdam Pedestrian Bridge (E-19B) over the Erie Canal will be conducted on Saturday, September 18.
Channel width may be reduced, and slight delays may occur due to a bucket boat and safety boat moving below the bridge.
Boaters should contact inspectors on Marine Channel 13. Boaters must reduce speed, stop all forward motion and proceed at a "No Wake" speed after receiving clearance to pass.
