Description 

This bridge is a few hundred yards east of the historic Lock 17 on the Erie Canal. This is a unique area in that the Mohawk River runs parallel to the canal, separated by Moss Island, an area popular with hikers and rock climbers. There is a big hydroelectric plant a few hundred yards west of Lock 17, along with historic mills along the rapuds.
