More Bike Paths And Lanes Coming To Findlay

7/16/18 – 5:01 A.M.

Findlay bicyclists will have more ways to get around in 2020. The Courier reports city council voted earlier this year to accept a $1.7 million grant from ODOT for its Transportation Alternatives Program. The grant will help extend the Blanchard River Greenway Trail, as well as create bike lanes along Blanchard and Lincoln streets.

The current greenway trail ends at 1100 East Main Cross Street. The extension will bring it all the way out to Bright Road.

Findlay Service Director Brian Thomas says the bike paths includes a separate multi-use trail along one side of Lincoln Street. That will stretch from Cory Street to Blanchard Street. There will also be separate bike lanes on Blanchard Street from Sixth Street north to the Blanchard River Greenway Trail.

Findlay has to pay 5 percent of the cost of the projects. That comes to a little more than $84,000.
