A new section of the Mill Creek Trail through South Cumminsville is now open. It connects the east side of the Mill Creek Bridge to Beekman Avenue.
According to the city of Cincinnati, phase four of the project involved retrofitting the Mill Creek Bridge for pedestrians and cyclists. The path is now seven feet wide and separated from traffic with plastic poles.
“We’re working hard to grow our trail network citywide,” says Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley. “These trails will change the face of our community by providing all Cincinnatians with convenient access to exercise, recreation and transportation.”
With the new section, the Mill Creek Trail runs 2.4 miles between Beekman Avenue and Salway Park in Northside.
Funding for the project came from the city, the Clean Ohio Trail Fund, Interact for Health, the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, and Groundwork Cincinnati.
