In this photo taken in 2004, Tug 44 approaches the lock chamber on her westbound transit. These photos were taken before a 3 year construction project began, to rebuild the entire dam. Sadly, the flood of June 2006 destroyed most of this area and closed the canal for months.

Seen here is Erie Canal Lock E-10 and its dam. Some construction barges sit alongside the dam.
