The city of Dayton plans six projects this year that will add bike lanes, ramps and connectors to help close some troublesome gaps in the downtown’s network of bike paths.
Not one of the projects will add more than about 0.4 miles of new bike lanes. But they will bridge existing bike lanes and paths that require some creative or tricky maneuvering to travel between right now.
One gap is about 0.2 miles long and separates the Jefferson Street bike lane from one on Warren Street. Warren Street turns into the Brown Street business corridor as it extends south.
Right now, cyclists headed to the University of Dayton from downtown or vice versa must ride beneath the U.S. overpass, usually as a constant stream of cars fly by, moving in all directions.
Closing that gap is expected to increase the number of people who bike between the UD campus area and downtown, since it will be safer and easier to navigate.
Here’s a summary of Dayton’s planned projects for 2018 and the projects finished last year.
Projects planned for 2018:
Wayne Avenue and East Fourth Street bike lanes: The project will install bike lanes along Wayne Avenue from East Fourth Street to East Fifth Street, as well as on East Fourth Street from St. Clair Street to Wayne Avenue. Length: 0.4 miles
Jefferson Street bike lanes: The project will construct a northbound bike lane along Jefferson Street from Buckeye Street (south of U.S. 35) to Patterson Boulevard. It also will create a southbound bike lane along Patterson Boulevard , East Sixth Street and Jefferson Street from East Fifth Street to Buckeye Street. Length: 0.3 Miles
Monument Avenue bike lane: The project will construct a westbound bike lane along Monument Avenue from Jefferson Street to Wilkinson Street. A southbound bike lane will be built along St. Clair Street from Monument Avenue to the alley north of East First Street. Length: 0.4 miles.
West Riverview Avenue bike ramp: Project will build a bike ramp from West Riverview Avenue at Forest Avenue to the Great Miami River Trail. Length: 0.1 miles.
Northcutt Place bikeway connector: Project will construct a bike path from Frederick Pike at Northcutt Place to the Stillwater Trail. Length: 0.1 miles.
Valley Street bikeway phase 1A: The project will build a bike path connector from Mad River bike trail north to Valley Street. The bike path will connect the existing trail with the bike lanes on Valley Street. Length: 0.2 miles.
Projects completed in 2017:
Valley Street Bikeway phase 1: The project constructed bike lanes on Valley Street from Herman Avenue to Rita Street, bike shared lane markings on Rita Street from Valley Street to Stanley Avenue and then a side path along Stanley Avenue from Rita Street to Troy Street. The project was completed in May 2017 at cost of $416,461. Length: 1.3 miles.
