Herkimer County trail project eyes 2020 completion

LITTLE FALLS — The New York State Canal Corporation Board of Directors has approved funding for an Erie Canalway Trail project that is the final link in a 7.6-mile trail between Little Falls and Mohawk.

The $2.07 million project involves the last 2.2-mile trail segment from Erie Canal Lock E-18 to Route 167. Tioga Construction of Herkimer is handling the project, which is expected to be completed by around October 2020.

Little Falls Mayor Mark Blask said the city already is working on ways to capitalize on the trail and use it to help boost tourism.
