Nine Mile Creek Aqueduct

An aqueduct is a bridge that carries water and/or canal boats over a valley, stream or river. In Camillus, the Erie Canal is carried over the Nine Mile Creek Aqueduct built in 1844. Made of limestone from the local Split Rock Quarry, the 144-foot waterway is the only navigable aqueduct in New York State. It was restored from 2008-2009 to replace the bed of the aqueduct and make it what we know today.
