This Champlain Canalway Trail is a work in progress. As of December 2016, it is finished from the Erie Canal lock 2 (E2) to a landfill site behind Momentive (formerly GE Plastics). Going north from Schoolhouse Road, it continues up to Upper Newtown Road. From there to Whitehall, NY, there are sections that are competed and others that are being planned and built.
