We look into the proposed bike trail from the east side to downtown
Some local community groups and leaders are pushing for the creation of a recreational bike trail that would go from Lunken Airport to Downtown Cincinnati, and connect to the existing regional trail network. But the proposed trail would follow an unused rail track on the Oasis line, alongside a track that still carries train traffic, and the company that moves that freight on that track is opposed to the trail.
SORTA, the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority, held a listening session on the proposed 4.75 mile trail last Friday. Here to give us some background and an update on the proposed project are Ohio River Way Board member Scott Goodfellow and Jason Williams, transportation reporter for The Cincinnati Enquirer.
