There will be two major pedestrian projects underway in 2019 that we are very excited about.
The first project is the beginning of a three phase project to construct a pedestrian walking/biking trail along the shoreline of the Ohio River in Dayton. This project, known as Riverfront Commons, is part of a much larger network of over 11 miles of river trails that will connect all 5 river communities in Northern Kentucky. Construction should begin this spring and plans for the trail can be seen below.
The second project is a sidewalk enhancement initiative that will focus on implementing new sidewalks on Dayton Pike and Belmont road and then enhancing the sidewalks along the 500 and 600 block of Sixth Avenue in the City’s Central Business District. This project will allow for better pedestrian connectivity and with future planning will link our downtown district with Ft. Thomas. This project just finished final design and is now entering the Right-of-Way phase. We hope construction will begin by the late summer of 2019. The plans for this project are below.
