Amherst receives award to enhance Erie Canalway Trail

The Town of Amherst has been awarded $65,000 for improvements on the Erie Canalway Trail, state officials said.

The grant will fund improvements on the trail along Tonawanda Creek from Sweet Home Road to New Road, the state Canal Corporation said in a news release.

The grant is part of $1 million in canal-related grants announced last week for municipalities and nonprofit organizations to enhance tourism and economic development along the Canal System.

A celebration of the Erie Canal's bicentennial began this year.
