SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) - The City of Sylvania has plans to extend the bike path north of Flower Hospital and under US-23.
The city released one of the first maps showing the extended bike path, which would end at Monroe.
The city has received and continues to apply for grants to pay for the $2.3 million project. The city's service director, Kevin Aller, says he expects the city will end up paying $1.1 million.
This project is the second of three phases to create the bike path, which will connect to other paths.
“The ultimate plan is to be able to connect that into both the University Trail and our existing bike plan that we have on Monroe Street,” said Aller.
The third phase will extend the bike path west. Construction on the second phase will not start until the summer of 2016.
