I have been hearing that due to maintenance the opening of the East end of Canal may be delayed. Has anyone have any up to date information on full opening date??

Erie Canal web site shows 1 May as tentative opening date for this year. I'm sure there will be updates as the day draws closer.

NYS operates a website http://www.canals.ny.gov/index.shtml
for all things Erie Canal. If you have never been on the NYS canal system it is worth the trip. Very very relaxing and slow - not everyone's cup of tea but Pam and I find it just lovely. Lots of free or really inexpensive places to tie up to and explore. BTW the latest info shows the entire canal system open as of May 1 2012.
