Background
Bicycle tourism is a growing industry in North America, contributing $198 billion annually to the economies of communities that provide facilities for tourists utilizing the facilities. The City of Columbus recognizes the importance of establishing a thorough bikeway infrastructure and has devoted substantial effort to construction of this bicycle friendly infrastructure.
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) has designated two North-South corridors crossing the center of the State to be developed as United States Bike Route 33 (USBR 33) and United States Bike Route 47 (USBR 47). The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is supportive of AASHTO designated bicycle routes through Ohio, subject to ongoing collaboration with affected jurisdictions to inventory, analyze, and designate specific routes to be used.
The Department of Public Service and the Recreation and Parks Department has investigated the proposed route and found it to be a suitable route, and desire that the route be designated so that it can be mapped and signed, thereby promoting bicycle tourism in the area. The current plan will be comprised of a combination of bike routes and shared use path within the City of Columbus as well as routes in Franklin County that are not in The City of Columbus.
