High level bridges

Submitted by lmcshane on Wed, 04/07/2010 - 20:57.

Some photos recently taken in and around Tremont and Brooklyn Centre. 

I know of three high level bridges that will allow you to cross the Cuyahoga River as a pedestrian or cyclist--Superior, Lorain and Harvard Ave. 

It would benefit all of us to have the Clark Ave. Bridge, again.

Jim Sheehan admits riding 490 bridge!

Not to get my favorite cycle advocate in trouble - but Jim Sheehan has used the 490 bridge to get from East side to West side of CLE - Bike Cleveland needs to push to get funds from Opportunity Corridor redirected for a high level pedestrian-bicycle ONLY bridge connecting Clark and Pershing.

KILL the Opportunity Corridor.

Help build momentum for Red Line Greenway

From Rotary of Cleveland:

Rotary Club of Cleveland and Cleveland Metroparks  Red Line Greenway (RLG) received notice last night that it will receive a $2,080,000 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant in 2020. The news came from Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) Executive Director Grace Gallucci who encouraged the original grant application. The funds will be used for Phase 1 of this transformative project that will connect eight diverse neighborhoods on Cleveland’s near west side with a three mile long world-class linear park and trail. The RLG will open what is today a hidden 60 acre urban oasis to thousands of families and children providing a safe place to play, meet and commute.  

 

The total estimated cost of the project is $13 million with phases 1 and 2 totaling $5.7 million. A start date for construction depends on when additional funding is secured.

 

Rotary is beginning its 39th year of grooming the rapid site. We are creating a web site, maps and informational materials in addition to providing ongoing maintenance and development of the site. Much remains to be done but this exciting funding news strengthens our commitment to the project and renews the dream of hundreds of Rotarians who have worked to make this project a reality.

Across the Buckeye State, trails provide opportunities for a healthy lifestyle, boost local economies, and provide a safe way to connect people and places. Ohio’s trails are an important resource—and your senators know it, too.
Sens. Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown recently wrote separate letters in support of building a critical trail connection that would link Cincinnati’s downtown waterfront parks to regional and statewide trail networks. They know that trails are a safe place for walking and biking and an incredible return on investment for local communities, and they are stepping up to support this trail.
Take Action
The trail connection in downtown Cincinnati is set to be built on an unused rail line and would create the final southern link to the Ohio River for the statewide Ohio to Erie Trail that runs to Lake Erie. The trail would take bicyclists off roads with fast-moving cars and provide a safe connection for commuters. It would also spur local economic development in the area and attract talented workers.
The regional transit authority that owns the rail line will soon make a decision whether to allow the trail, and the strong backing from Sens. Portman and Brown is a big boost for supporters on an issue that has been controversial.
Send your message today to let your senators know that they are supporting a cause that is important to you—and that they should continue to support trails in the future.
Thanks for your support!
Sincerely,
Eric Oberg
