Long Description:
This is lock 28 on the Erie Canal. It is located about 1 mile outside of Lyons, New York along Route 31. This lock is quite active as this portion of the Erie Canal is quite scenic and most of the villages along this stretch of the canal have modernized their canal access to better accomodate boaters travelling the canal as tourists. There is two sets of lock gates here, one set is for the travellers and the other set leads into a dry dock area that the state uses for their tugs, repairing equipment, etc...
