Mohawk Valley dam13
Posted By: reh321, 07-11-2018, 03:14 PM

I've ridden back-and-forth past this spot on the Amtrak Chicago-Albany train and never quite known what I was looking at. When stopping at a Visitor Center on I-90, I learned this is a dam used to control the river.

That is an interesting structure. It almost looks like they re-purposed a bridge to hang the gate assemblies below, or just used a bridge design and tweaked it for this purpose.

Nice image, I never noticed it on the train to Chicago from Albany. I will ask SWMBO since she takes that train more often than I do. If you have to go to D.C. from Chicago take the Cardinal and sit on the right side of the train for the New River Gorge in WV. Beautiful landscapes.
