Enlarged Erie Canal Lock No. 58 (also called the middle Lockville lock) is located in Newark, N.Y. just north of Route 31 on Lyons Street. It is approximately a half mile east of Enlarged Erie Canal Lock No. 59. The lock is a double-chamber, single-length lock, with a lift to the west of 7.93 feet.
Lock No. 58 is currently the site of a scrap metal company, which has built a workshop/storage building in the south chamber. In 2008, a group of volunteers began clearing the north chamber as part of a canal trail project. Below are pictures of Lock No. 58 taken in October 2006 before any clearing was done.

The northern wall of the south chamber can be seen to the right of the building.||Looking west at the north chamber of the lock. In 2006, this end was filled with scrap metal. The stone of the chamber can just barely be seen.|

A recess for one of the lock gates when in the open position can be seen on the far side (behind the tree with dark bark).||Views of the western end of the north chamber of Lock No. 58, looking east in 2006.
