Lyons Canal Trail Work Underway

The New York State Canal Corporation today announced that the construction of a one-half mile segment of the Erie Canalway Trail between Abbey Park and Erie Canal Lock 27 in Lyons will resume this week. The trail will create a 120-mile trail route from Lyons to Buffalo by linking to a trail segment currently under construction in Arcadia.

Work to be performed includes the construction of a 10-foot wide asphalt trail and retaining wall, along with railing and sign placement.  The public is asked to refrain from using portions of the trail marked closed for construction.  The project is scheduled to be completed in June2013.

The Lyons Erie Canalway Trail project is funded by the Canal Corporation. The new section of trail is being constructed in partnership with Wayne County and the Village of Lyons, and will help boost tourism and recreation along the canal corridor.  

The Lyons Erie Canalway Trail segment is part of the statewide, multi-use, Erie Canalway Trail linking the Hudson River and Lake Erie. More than three-quarters of the 365-mile Erie Canalway Trail from Buffalo to Albany is now complete. For more information, please visit
