Bike path additions to join people, parks, shopping and jobs - Dispatch

Some central Ohio communities want their bike paths and trails to connect people to places, not lead to dead ends.
In Knox County, for example, the Mount Vernon City Council has voted to negotiate to acquire about 3 acres of abandoned railway along Foundation Park to eventually connect with the Kokosing Gap Trail. That path is part of the Ohio to Erie Trail, which aims to connect Cleveland to Cincinnati.
"The idea is to put all of this together, and make that linkage," said Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Mavis. Funding would be both public and private.
