CLEVELAND — Ohio is looking to create a statewide network of paths and trails to give walkers and bikers safe and convenient ways to get around their communities.

The state’s first statewide plan for active modes of transportation is looking for your feedback.

Walk.Bike.Ohio will create a roadmap to guide ODOT’s bike and pedestrian infrastructure projects and program funding. When it’s all said and done, the plan will guide the state’s bike and pedestrian policies and investments.

Without access to transportation, people have a harder time getting to work, the grocery store, school or simply just getting around. Many communities rely on multiple modes of transportation to connect to basic services.

Making improvements for people who walk or bike is not just important for mobility, but it can also improve health and safety.
