A nearly unanimous Cincinnati City Council wants to move forward with buying the four miles of railroad right of way needed for the Wasson Way bike trail.

Cincinnati Council could vote Wednesday to apply for up to $29 million in federal money to fund the Wasson Way Commuter Trail Network.  

It is a proposed shared-use path for bikes and pedestrians along an unused rail line running through several eastside city neighborhoods.
