On-street Bikeway Network Grows to 19 miles in 2012
Prior to 2012, Cincinnati’s on-street bicycle network included 8.6 centerline miles (both sides of a street) of bicycle lanes, 0.8 miles of climbing lanes (bicycle lane on one side, sharrows on the other side) and 4.6 centerline miles of sharrows.
An additional 5 miles of bike lanes and sharrows were installed on six streets this year. The streets include Riverside Drive (1.1 miles), Madison Road – Woodburn to Beech Crest (0.5 miles), Madison Road – Alston to Ridge (0.8 miles), Ludlow Avenue (0.5 miles), Jefferson Avenue (0.5 miles), Mitchell Avenue (0.6 miles), and Spring Grove Avenue (1.0 miles).
Additionally, a 0.6 mile shared-use path was constructed on Dana Avenue between Montgomery Road and Victory Parkway (near Xavier University). This off-street path will provide a high level of safety and comfort for bicyclists traveling in the area. The western terminus of the path is within a quarter mile of the existing bicycle lanes on Victory Parkway.
A new 0.4 mile segment of Ohio River Trail linking the Lunken Airport trail to the Magrish Nature Preserve was also completed. The trail extension will provide a safe, separated path that pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages can use to cross the Little Miami Scenic River.
