Ohio Avenue and Champion Avenue Bike Lanes

Mayor Michael B. Coleman’s vision for Columbus streets includes as many bicycle accommodations as possible within the existing right-of-way. This project consists of new pavement markings, bike lanes and signage on:

  • Ohio Avenue between Cole Street and Mount Vernon Avenue
  • Champion Avenue between Cole Street and Mount Vernon Avenue

The project will connect to existing bike lanes and sharrows on Ohio and Champion avenues plus sharrows on Bryden Road, contributing further to a continuous network of bikeways in Columbus. Riders can also use COTA buses on route #81 that runs between University City Shopping Center on Olentangy River Road and Rickenbacker Air Base to “bike and ride.”

Construction is set to begin in August, with completion scheduled for October 2015, weather permitting. 

Estimated Cost:
Construction: $425,700. This project also includes bike lanes on Long and Spring streets.
