"The Erie Canalway Trail will be closed to walkers, cyclists and others near Route-390 in Gates from Monday through at least Labor Day. "The popular trail will be blocked off between Route-390 on the west and a point to the east of Lee Road, according to a barely legible map disseminated on Twitter Saturday by the state Canal Corporation. "Users apparently will be directed onto Trolley Boulevard to detour around the closure, which the Canal Corporation said is necessitated by work on Route-390 highway bridges." ... (at least there is a detour - see web address below for full article... and that "barley legible" map) Source: Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, 04/20/2019 Full article:

I've detour to Trolley Boulevard a few times there. Shouldn't be a big problem. Their stopping people from going underneath the 390 bridge. There's a paved path right before the east side of the bridge that exit's to Trolley. As I remember it.

The detour is easy, and pretty safe. There is a traffic light at the one street crossing.
