High water on Mohawk closes stretch of Erie Canal

Posted:

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) - A 93-mile stretch of the Erie Canal from the Albany area to central New York has been closed because of high water levels on the Mohawk River.
    
The state Canal Corp. says the canal is closed Tuesday from Lock E-6 in southern Saratoga County to Lock E-19 in Frankfort in Herkimer County. The canal is in the river along that section of the 363-mile waterway.
    
Recent heavy rains have raised water levels on the Mohawk, and the National Weather Service says the latest round of storms that began Monday will continue through Tuesday. More rain is expected Thursday.
