CINCINNATI - The city of Cincinnati Bicycle Transportation Program is
seeking public input for the Central Parkway Bikeway plan.
The plan calls for the creation of bicycle lanes between Elm Street
and Ludlow Avenue on Central to "spur the largest number of people to
use bicycles, while still balancing the needs of other people who use
the street," according to the city's website.
Three options are presented to viewers on the bike plan's webpage at
http://ow.ly/napZe to chose from for phase one, sections two and three
of the project that run from Elm Street to Liberty Street and Brighton
to Marshall avenues.
Those options include a single bicycle lane on each side of Central
Parkway, and a two lane bike path on one side of the roadway. Also
included in one plan is a "cycle track" that establishes a physical
barrier between car and bicycle traffic.
Phase one, segment one that runs from Elm to Liberty streets will
consist of a single lane cycle track, according to the website.
For more information about the Central Parkway Bikeway plan, and to
submit your input, visit

Input is also being sought on a re-striping project of Delta Avenue in
Hyde Park and Mount Lookout that would add a bicycle lane connecting
existing bicycle lanes to downtown. Input can be submitted to that
project he

The Licking River Greenway and Trails was named Best of Northern
Kentucky under the fitness trail category at the recent NKY Magazine’s
Best of NKY party.

The Best of Northern Kentucky contest was voted on by hundreds of
Northern Kentucky Magazine subscribers. Finalists from the top
vote-getters in 65 categories attended the event to showcase why they
were Northern Kentucky’s favorite.

Other finalists in the Best Fitness Trail category include Boone
County Arboretum at Central Park and Boone Woods.

The Licking River Greenway and Trails is an urban greenway from the
mouth of the Licking River to the I-275 loop. The trail system seeks
to connect neighborhoods and businesses on both sides of the river
improving safety and increasing property values. The trail is governed
by an inter local agreement signed by Covington, Wilder and Taylor
Mill and includes nature, paved, and water trails.

A two-mile portion of the trail has opened behind Holmes High School
and stretches to 9th Street at Randolph Park. Paved trails are also
accessible from Clayton-Meyer Park.

Work on the Licking River Greenway and Trails will continue this
summer. The second phase of the paved trail is being developed with on
street biking and walking paths to stretch from the existing trail
north to Confluence and south to 47th Street.

ArtWorks has again partnered with Vision 2015 on the construction of
nine murals for the trails. The murals focus on the theme “energy” and
will be placed on existing concrete gate-well structures to support
and represent beauty, character, and community found along the Licking
River and throughout Northern Kentucky.

Several community days are planned each year to clean-up the trails.
The next community day is 9 a.m. to noon, Sept. 21.
