Sentence has modifier issue:

A. Seldom more than 40 feet wide and 12 feed deep, but it ran 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected [Seldom more than 40 feet wide and 12 feed deep – incorrectly modifies “but” – eliminate it]

B. Seldom more than 40 feet wide or 12 feet but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected [Hold it]

C. It was seldom more than 40 feet wide and 12 feet deep, and ran 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, but the Erie Canal, connecting [Seldom more than 40 feet wide and 12 feed deep – incorrectly modifies “but” – eliminate it]

D. The Erie Canal was seldom more than 40 feet wide or 12 feet deep and it ran 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, which connected [ “it” issue; “Which” incorrectly modifies New York – eliminate it]

E. The Erie Canl, seldom more than 40 feed wide and 12 feet deep, but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of update New York, connecting [ Implies “New York” connecting – eliminate it]
