HERKIMER, N.Y. – Another 2.4-mile section of the Empire State Trail has been completed in Herkimer County, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

This part of the trail fills the gap between Erie Canal Lock E-18 in Jacksonburg and State Route 167 in Little Falls.

The $3.3 million project was funded by the Empire State Trail, New York Power Authority and the Canal Corporation.

"This year, the Erie Canalway Trail has been a lifeline for so many, as local residents explored recreational opportunities in their backyards while remaining safe during a global health pandemic," said Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul. "This new addition to the trail not only makes a physical connection between two locations, but it also continues to build on how we are reimagining one of the state's most historic corridors as a source of recreation and entertainment."

Tioga Construction of Herkimer County started working on this new segment of the trail during the summer of 2019.
