Northern Tier Map 10, Erie Canal Trail Construction
« on: November 01, 2013, 09:19:30 pm »
The Erie Canalway Trail is under rehab between Pittsford and Fairport, NY.  This is on Northern Tier.  Construction is to last through 2014.  Per Canal Corp. press release, sections will be closed only as necessary.  I don't know if detours will be posted, but I'm presuming not.  A reasonable alternate route is to use NY 31, Ayrault Road and Turk Hill Road.

Thanks, Jennifer.  I don't think the first reference is much help but it does provide background.  And as for the second, well, I wrote it so it's highly recommended. ;)

There is also highway construction which impacts the trail in Rochester, between East Henrietta and Kendrick roads.  There is a posted detour.

An update:
  • For both construction areas, detours have been intermittent and only used when necessary. 
  • Parts of the trail reconstruction, in Pittsford and Fairport, are completed.
  • The highway construction near West Henrietta Rd. is idled at this time (June '14).  I presume they're waiting for concrete to cure on the new bridge abutments before adding bridge sections.

We also received a cycling-specific detour suggested by a local cyclist. It is posted on Map 131 on the Northern Tier 10 addenda.

1. The rehabilitation project from Pittsford to Fairport is now completed.  For details, see the Canal Corp. website at
http://www.canals.ny.gov/news/pressrel/2014/2014-08-27-project-completion-roc-area.html

2. Construction on adjoining I-390 continues, between East Henrietta and Kendrick roads.  The trail is rarely closed, but if they're lifting steel for a bridge they close for part of a day.  One section about 150M/500' is gravel but is rideable with most tires.

Carla, will your shop update the addendum?
