On Tuesday, 108 feet of replacement pipe arrived to replace the damaged culvert pipe 9 feet below the Erie Canal. The Canal in this area was drained and the soil stabilized. The area on either side of the new pipe will be sealed using sheet piling driven into the gound. The south embankment in the area of the collapse will be rebuilt later in the week, with the hopes that the Canal can be re-opened in about one week. A 25 mile stretch of the Erie Canal is still closed to navigation between Middleport in Niagara County and Holley in Orleans County.
