Funding is being finalized for a project that aims to make Westerville a destination for bicyclists.

Brick sales and sponsorships are being solicited for the remaining $25,000 needed to construct the Westerville Legacy Train Depot. It's a $150,000 project that will include a variety of amenities for those traveling by bicycle.

To be located in the city's Hanby Park at 115 E. Park St., the depot is part of a city trail loop. But it's also a section of the Ohio to Erie Trail that, when completed, will stretch from Cincinnati to Cleveland.
