Using a New York State Canalway grant, the Village of Newark will upgrade the canal trail from North Main Street to Harder Park. The project will include widening and paving the currently segmented canal trail, adding benches and taking measures to prevent erosion. During construction, portions of the trail will be intermittently closed and detours will be posted. Please be patient while these improvements are being made. Thank you.

This week, most of the activity will be near Edgett Street, but there will also be work on other areas of the trail, so it will be closed from North Main Street to Harder Park.  The plan is to open the trail at the end of each work day.
