The Travels of Tug 44

Oswego Canal Lock O-2
Fulton, NY

The northbound view of Oswego Canal Lock O-2 shows a bridge laying right across the lock. The bridge has only 5 feet clearance when the lock is full, so you must stay south of it, when traveling either direction. It's a fixed bridge, but the lock drops 18 feet, so when empty, clearance is no problem.

A better look at the fixed bridge across the lock.

Another look at the bridge with the lock emptied and the gates opening. The clearance is now 23 feet.

A Nordic Tug exits the lock, traveling northward.

Sept 2013, I discovered to my astonishment that the fixed bridge over the lock is actually a functional swing bridge!
