Canal Corp Clean Up The Bow!

Yesterday, a large backhoe and a wood chipper appeared unannounced – and the work began.

As the Canal Corporation has now moved it’s operation into Summer Mode, their crews are doing Spring Clean-up and our little corner is getting The Treatment.

What are they staring at? see below–
A huge pile of logs – GONE!
Our new park and trail is beginning to take shape.

The work should be finished today and the Canal Crews will be moving on to other Spring Clean up jobs along the canal towpaths. This sort of work is only done in the summer season when the canal is full.

Nasty thorn bush
Gone!
All brush piles GONE!
Lookin’ good!

I live in Fairport, and my home is at The Oxbow section of The Erie Canal. I fish, have a pontoon boat and like messing in boats. (see www.mud-skipper.com). I'm retired and enjoy every day living here with my wife Carol and our two dogs.
