Canalway Trail Advisories

The following closures are in effect on the Erie Canalway Trail:

In the town of Gates, between I-390 and Lee Road. Trail users can take a detour on Trolley Road to rejoin the trail on either end. This closure is expected to remain in place until Labor Day to accommodate bridge construction on I-390 by the state Department of Transportation.

There will be construction at the Flight of Five in Lockport to install reproduction timber miter gates on the old locks. The Canal Corporation is scheduled to close the canal trail, in the vicinity of the Historic Flight of Five Locks, between August 1, 2019 and August 22, 2019. These will be daily closures Monday thru Friday between 7:00am and 4:00pm. The trail will be opened at the end of the work day and on weekends.
The pedestrian detour will be in place during the trail closures.

Note: This is based on the Contractors scheduled and could be subject to change.
I will notify you when the closures actually begin and keep you up to date on any changes.
