KNOWLESVILLE – The New York State Canal Corporation announced the Knowlesville Lift Bridge in Ridgeway will be closed on May 7-8 for repairs to the bridge’s lifting system.

Crews will replace electrical cables to the bridge, which carries traffic over the Erie Canal. During the project, a signed detour will be posted, using Eagle Harbor-Knowlesville Road, W. Barre-Eagle Harbor Road and Telegraph Road.

This work will not affect the Erie Canalway Trail, said Steven Gosset, manager of public relations for the New York Power Authority, which oversees the canal system.
