Vischer Ferry Preserve Erie Canal Access Improvements

The Clute's Dry Dock Pedestrian Bridge project will expand public access for residents and tourists to the newly restored Erie Canal Community Connector Trail and connect the north and south sides of the Canal, while preserving remnants of the original stone bridge abutments. The Erie Canal Community Connector Trail is a regional trail that connects the towns of Clifton Park to Halfmoon under Interstate-87 within the Vischer Ferry Nature & Historic Preserve. The bridge will provide access for both pedestrians and emergency trail vehicles crossing the Erie Canal Prism to the historic 1825 Erie Canal Towpath.
