The Open Blackstone Canal
Today, there is only a small portion of the Canal that is exposed. This lone open section of the Canal is near Worcester's sewage treatment facility near the interchange of I-90 (the MassPike), U.S. Rt. 20, and Rt. 146.
From here, the canal flows under Rt. 20 on its way out of Worcester. The canal, or the old canal bed in some places, winds its way in and out of the Blackstone River until its remains reach Providence.
