Canal Street-Old Erie Canal Bridge

Yes that stone structure in street view is pretty neat.

My guess is that it allows the old canal to pass over Brandy Brook like a very short aquaduct.

A similar structure exists at 43.133835, -75.673702 where another small stream passes under the canal.

Those structures probably date to the construction of the canal. Looks like an interesting area to visit.

I wish I were closer to here--there is what appears to be a very old Pratt truss footbridge over the canal about a half-mile north of this location. Lat/Long coords:

43.134748 -75.674952

Canal St. streetview shows a good view of the east end.

Thanks Don, Street view I added panned left Shows interesting Masonry Arch Culvert that could be canal era. Realize NBI pins to be off, some by continents but found it interesting pin was RIGHT on it. Does appear to be what could be the stringer in question on canal Street/and or rt46. Site visit will clarify. Ill add to list! So many bridges so little time

I'm nowhere near there, but older NBI entries for the same bridge say "Old route 46", which was apparently Main Street.

I'm thinking the bridge near the intersection of Canal Street and Main Street may be the one you are looking for.
