Erie Canalway Trail closure in Lockport to last another week

LOCKPORT – The temporary closure of the Erie Canalway Trail near the Lockport locks will last until next Friday, a week longer than originally expected, the state Canal Corp. announced Friday.

The blockage is caused by heavy equipment being used to repair the canal wall just east of the Pine Street Bridge. Trail users have been detoured since Nov. 9 via the island that separates the current and original sets of locks. However, the work has reached a stage where the power to the lights on the island needed to be shut off, causing the closure.
