Brockport Loop Announced

January 7, 2020

Connecting the north and south sides of the canal, between the College of Brockport and the Village of Brockport is a guard gate.  This gate was never intended as a connection for people -- until now.  The gate is being reimagined as a pedestrian bridge.

The Guard Gate bridge, the anchor of the Brockport Loop, will provide access to the Empire State Trail and Corbett Park in the Village. It will be a stimulus to the further development of Brockport Community Rowing at Commissary Park and to the partnership between the College and the Village. Without question, the bridge and the completion of the Loop (to the Smith Street Bridge and across) will stimulate economic development and tourism, drawing people from the greater Brockport area along with more visitors to our section of the Erie Canal.

Read the Governor's press release about reimagining the Erie Canal, including his announcement of the Brockport Loop here.

See the local WHAM news piece, including interview with Mayor Blackman, here.

Canal Embankment Update/ Trail Access

December 18, 2019

 Canal Embankment Update, as noted in the Winter Village newsletter (see link below for info regarding trail acces locations)

During the spring and summer, Nick Schwartz, CHA Companies landscape architect on contract with the Canal Corporation, met with Brockport homeowners regarding possible plantings at the toe and top of the embankment. The original plan called for the work to be completed this fall, but that has now been pushed back until next spring.

Meantime, CHA completed an assessment of potential new Erie Canalway Trail Access locations in Brockport. They investigated four potential new trail access locations—from Lyman Street, McCormick Place, Sunflower Landing, and Evergreen Park. The conceptual designs considered ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), Empire State Trail Design Guide, and AASHTO (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials) Bicycle Guide standards. CHA’s November 5 memo, “Assessment of New Erie Canalway Trail Access Locations” is available here.

Neighbors across the canal from Allied Frozen Storage should be pleased to know that plans also call for the planting of 18 Norway spruce along the south bank of the canal adjacent to the Allied Frozen Storage facility. These plantings will be installed in the spring at the same time as the others being planted to address adjacent homeowner concerns.
