Columbus, Ohio, has big bike plans

Does Fort Wayne have any plans similar to this? In the Columbus Dispatch:

Add 31 miles of off-street trails and 58 miles of on-street bike lanes and routes.

Make N. High Street friendlier to bicyclists.

Build a Downtown bike station where two-wheel commuters would be able to change clothes and park their bikes.

Those are some of the ideas in an ambitious 288-page plan issued last week by the city. But there is a lot of work to be done before Columbus becomes a biking utopia.

“We have something on paper now,” said Ira Weiss, 61, an avid cyclist from Pickerington. “I want to see that in asphalt. I want to see that in concrete.”

The 20-year plan has a total estimated cost of $167.6 million.
