FRANKFORT – The New York State Canal Corporation will soon be holding a public meeting about additional work to the Erie Canalway Trial in the Mohawk Valley.

A meeting will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6 at the Frankfort Village Municipal Building, located at 110 Railroad St. During the meeting, officials will give local residents information about proposed trail construction, which would begin at the intersection of Acme Road and the westbound off-ramp fort Route 5S in Frankfort, and would stretch 1.25 miles east to the Ilion Marina.

Officials want to construct a 10-foot-wide asphalt paved path, with two-foot shoulders on each side of the trail along with trail signage.

At the Feb. 6 meeting, Canal Corp. officials will answer the public’s questions and show graphic displays of what the proposed trail would look like.

The Erie Canalway Trail runs from Albany to Buffalo, and it’s currently more than 80 percent complete, according to the Canal Corp. It’s expected to be finished by 2020.
