ALBION – The Erie Canal is pictured today in Albion with the Gaines Basin Road bridge in the background.
The canal is typically drained this time of year. The State Canal Corporation emptied the canal last month but it has been refilled so the Canal Corporation can inspect culverts, said Steven Gosset.
The canal will be dewatered again shortly, Gosset said.
