When completed, the Ohio River Trail will extend 34 miles between New Richmond in Clermont County and Shawnee Lookout Park on the western edge of Hamilton County.
The Ohio River Trail - West Phase One is a component of that trail. It is generally located from the Evans Recreational Area near the Mill Creek to Gilday Riverside Playfield in the neighborhoods of Lower Price Hill, Sedamsville, Riverside, and Sayler Park.
The City of Cincinnati’s Department of Transportation and the River West Working Group are in the process of conducting a feasibility study of the Ohio River Trail - West Phase One.
All are invited to attend the Open House to learn about the study and share feedback.
- The Right Angle is the Best Angle
Always slow down and cross streetcar tracks at a 60 to 90 degree angle. Crossing incorrectly can result in your front tire sliding on the rail or geting stuck in the gap next to the rail, which can cause you to fall from your bicycle.
- 4 Local Trails Get New Mile Markers
Four paved trails will receive new mile markers this week, helping first responders locate injured trail users more quickly.
- Cincinnati Installs Bicycle-Friendly Thermal Traffic Sensor
The City of Cincinnati has launched a pilot project that will utilize a thermal traffic sensor to detect motorists and bicyclists at a Clifton intersection.
- Updated Bicycle Network Map
The Bicycle Transportation Program has updated the map of existing bicycle facilities within the City. The map shows the location of existing bicycle facilities such as bike lanes, sharrows, and shared-use paths.
- Green Lanes On Central Parkway
A special bright green treatment is used in high-traffic areas where motorists turning onto or off of Central Parkway cross over the path of the new bicycle lanes.
