Some Cincy council members ready to make one bike trail a priority

Six Cincinnati Council Members are ready to ask city officials to focus their attention on building a bike and walking trail along the Oasis railroad line instead of a similar project along the Ohio River.  

A committee approved the motion Tuesday and the full council could vote on it Wednesday.  

Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune spoke at the meeting.  He said many officials want a trail built from downtown to the east side, but he said the city shouldn't limit the work.

Cincinnati gets federal grant for bike trails

Cincinnati is getting $1 million from the federal government for bike trails.  The funds come from the Transportation Alternatives program from the U.S. Department of Transportation.  

A city press release said half of the money will be used to expand a West Side bicycle route to make it easier for students to get to school.  The rest will be used to repair potholes on the Lunken Trail along Wilmer Avenue.

The Westwood Trail will create a “Safe Routes to School” connection with Western Hills High School.
