    City to spend $8.7 million on trail upgrades
    By GARY SEMAN JR.

    Tuesday March 12, 2013 10:10 AM

    The city of Columbus will add two significant pieces — and 6.25 miles overall — to its system of bikeway trails this year. Included in the $8.7 million in planned 2013 improvements to city trails is the 3.5-mile extension of the Camp Chase Rail Trail, a $1.6 million project that will connect to the Ohio to Erie Trail, completing a 160-mile section of continuous path from Columbus to Cincinnati. When the northern section is complete, the statewide trail will be more than 260 miles as it stretches from Cincinnati to Cleveland.

    West Side Bike Improvements on Track for Spring
    Published on March 16, 2013 8:00 am
    By: Brent Warren

    The implementation of the Bicentennial Bikeways Plan continues this spring when construction will start on improvements along Sullivant Avenue and Georgesville Road. “Share the Road” signs will be installed and sharrows (pavement markings indicating that lanes are for both bikes and cars) will be painted on Sullivant from Grubb Street in Franklinton all the way west to the Camp Chase Railroad crossing, just east of I-270.

    [b]OLENTANGY TRAIL/ GOODALE STREET BRIDGE[/b]
    Construction has started on the Olentangy Trail for the new Goodale Street Bridge and Trail Connector. This new connection will be an important link to the Central Ohio Greenway system by increasing access to the Grandview Heights and Harrison West neighborhoods. A new bike/ped bridge and trail will be built between Olentangy River Road to near Michigan Avenue. A new ramp will also connect Goodale Street to the Olentangy Trail. During construction, the trail will remain open and caution signs will be posted marking areas of construction. Please use extreme caution and slow down when passing through the construction zone—workers and equipment will be close to the edges of the path.

    Update to Columbus Bike Plan Aims to Educate and Encourage
    Published on January 23, 2014 7:00 am
    By: Brent Warren

    The Bicentennial Bikeways Plan, a document released in 2008 that laid out an ambitious series of projects and initiatives meant to transform Columbus into a premier bicycling city, is due for an update.

    City officials say the update will focus more on education and outreach than mapping out new bike infrastructure or bike lanes (a new Complete Streets Thoroughfare Plan, also planned for this year, will provide specific recommendations for individual streets).

    Alum Creek Bike Path Connector Planned to Link Innis Park to Easton
    June 2, 2014 10:07 pm — Walker Evans

    CyclingExplorer.com.

    A half mile piece of missing bike trail along Alum Creek is currently all that is preventing the connection of the central portion of the path with the northern stretch. Once completed, the connector will bridge Innis Park with Easton for continuous access to the bikeway for residents and visitors on the Northeast side of Columbus, Westerville and other communities.

    Want to help make the city better for bikes?

    After the 2008 plan bike plan was implemented, many people on Columbus Underground complained that too much focus was put on building bike shelters and not enough for on-street accommodations. Now is the time to speak up – take action and be heard. Don’t expect someone else to speak up for you, most public meetings have very few people there from the true public, time to speak up and get involved.

    Please attend the City of Columbus Public Workshop
    Wednesday, June 25 3-5 p.m.
    Columbus Public Health
    Auditorium (2nd Floor)
    240 Parsons Ave.
    Columbus, OH 43215

    This is the best way to make an impact on the city, provide input on the document that will guide the future decisions! Take time off work if you have to, we need all the real people at this meeting, the people who will ACTUALLY use these facilities, not just the engineers who are drawing up the plans.

    If people ride critical mass and don’t attend this meeting, then you really don’t care about making it better for bikes. The city is already listening, critical mass is an exercise in futility.

    Speak now to make a real difference.
