 It’s been more than five years since town officials applied or a grant to complete the Erie Canalway trail through Newark and Arcadia and in October 2014 the town cut the ribbon to officially open the trail to residents.It all started at the corner o East Avenue and Van Buren Street in the village o Newark where highway crews cleared a path or the new trail that connects Palmyra, Newark and Lyons along the historic waterway. Highway Superintendent Dave Harder recalled it took two years to get the permits approved, severely cutting into the time allowed under the grant to complete the trail.Te trail through Wayne County begins in Macedon and was started back in 1988 when Mark DeCracker presented a proposal to Sen. Patrick Moynihan. Cleanups started along the canal to clear away excessive brush and garbage. By the late 1990s, trails began to be built in different sections across the state. Locally, the trail was first installed rom Fairport to Palmyra, then Palmyra to Newark — but they ended there at the East Avenue bridge. Maps along the canal trail show the trail continues, but the project was never completed. In 2008, Supervisor Dick Colacino said they were notified the grant money was available again. he hold up came in applying or the permits, until Colacino went to the then new director o the state Canal Corporation Brian Stratton asking or his help to complete the process and jump start the project. Costs or the project were shared between the county, town and village and Colacino said without their support, the trail may not have ever been completed.Te pathway was mapped out by canal officials and town engineer Bob Hutteman rom Lu Engineers and required a roadside trail detour to avoid the CSX railroad tracks running parallel to the canal. Work began in May 2011, crews working in what Harder and Deputy Superintendent Dan Pullen called the “wilderness section” o the trail. A wall o heavy brush and large trees stood beore highway crew members, who were unaccustomed to building canal trails.“We’re highway guys,” Harder said. “But we can do anything. It was brutal down there. I’m talking big trees and brush. We had trees five eet around...and tree work is slow.”Besides problems o the leay variety, crews were also fighting mosquitoes and horse flies.“hat irst part was the worst,” Pullen said.Pullen rallied the men, splitting them into three groups — one group cleared brush and trees, behind them was the second group who began preparing the 6-oot pathway and then the third was right on their heels laying the trail down with crush and run stone and topping it with stone dust. Only what was necessary was cleared rom the path, Harder said, and crews were careul not to disturb anything they didn’t need to in order to preserve the wilderness aspect o the section o trail. Te work wasn’t exactly oreign to Harder’s “good ol’ country boys” who have cut up a ew trees or irewood throughout the years. But he also boasts a very talented crew — builders, masons and electric experts — he hired or the talents they have.“I think that’s why we’re such a successul crew,” Harder said o his town highway department. “I’ve surrounded mysel with talented people.”Te project became one o teamwork with help crossing town lines to get the job done.
