Bridge 8 - A highway bridge in Rexford, New York over the Erie Canal / Mohawk River.This view shows the west side of the bridge. Beyond the bridge is the historic remains of the 1842 Erie Canal Aqueduct. We can see the single arch that remains on the north side of the Mohawk River. The 1842 aqueduct replaced the original 1824 aqueduct at this site when the Erie Canal was enlarged during the years of 1835- 1862.
