ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The last section of the Erie Canal in the Mohawk Valley still closed by high water is expected to reopen this week.

The state Canal Corp. says Wednesday that the canal from Lock E-8 in Scotia in Schenectady County to Lock E-15 in Fort Plain in Montgomery County is scheduled to re-open for navigation no later than 8 a.m. Friday, weather permitting.

Sections of the Erie, Oswego, Cayuga-Seneca and Champlain canals were shut down in recent weeks because of high water caused by heavy rains. Most of those waterways reopened to navigation last week.
