Bike trail nears completion

Bike trail nears completion


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Cyclists will soon be able to pedal the length of central Ohio’s longest continuous bike trail, thanks to action by Columbus City Council Monday night.

Council members approved spending $6.2 million to connect the final 1.25-mile section of the Alum Creek trail, providing access to the Ohio Dominican University campus and the Brittany Hills community.

Once completed, the trail will run 22 miles from Westerville to Three Creeks Park near Canal Winchester and will hook into the Ohio-to-Erie Trail at each end.

The segment to be completed by next spring includes stream crossings over Alum Creek and two smaller tributary creeks.

The Alum Creek trail has been under construction for 15 years.
