Construction to begin on Lyons Erie Canalway Trail project

A missing link in the Erie Canalway Trail in Lyons, Wayne County will be constructed beginning this year, the New York State Canal Corp. announced Wednesday.

Once completed, the new trail segment between Abbey Park and Erie Canal Lock 27 will link to an Erie Canalway Trail segment currently under construction in the Towns of Arcadia and Lyons, and a recently announced new segment from Amherst to Lockport, helping to create a 134-mile uninterrupted trail route from Lyons to Buffalo.

The Lyons Erie Canalway Trail project will be constructed with Canal Corp. funds in partnership with Wayne County and the Village of Lyons. Features will include a new 10-foot wide asphalt trail, as well as informational and directional signage.

"The Erie Canal and Canalway Trail continue to serve as one of the Empire State's most important economic corridors, generating jobs for New York through tourism, recreation, agriculture, green energy, commerce and more,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in a statement.
