Two popular canals in Winter Park will close for several weeks for regular maintenance dredging.

The Venetian Canal, which connects Lake Maitland to Lake Osceola, will close beginning Monday, April 17. The use of the canal will be restricted to Monday through Friday, reopening for regular use on Saturdays and Sundays.

The work on the canal is expected to be complete in six weeks and city officials will provide when work is concluded.

Once completed, the same work schedule will be implemented at the Fern Canal, which connects Lake Osceola to Lake Virginia.
