ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A nearly 100-mile stretch of the eastern section of the Erie Canal remains has reopened after being closed for a day because of high water levels from recent heavy rainfall.

The state Canal Corp. says the canal was closed Thursday from Lock E10 at Cranesville, on the Mohawk River near Amsterdam, to Lock E22, near the eastern end of Oneida Lake in central New York.

Canal system officials say the 90-mile-long closed section of the waterway reopened Friday morning after conditions became safe for navigation.
