OKI pedestrian and bike projects approved

FOX19 - Bikers and pedestrians are becoming more of a priority in the Greater Cincinnati region's transportation policy.

This month, the OKI Regional Council of Governments Board of Directors unanimously approved a 4-year update to the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan. The update includes 17 bike and pedestrian related projects worth more than $190 million dollars

That is a nearly $189 million dollar increase from the plan's previous bike and pedestrian projects.

"We applaud OKI for their leadership to include the voice of bicyclists and pedestrians in the 2040 Plan update," said Frank Henson, Chair of Tri-State Trails and President of Queen City Bike.
