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.
