New Bike Path Connection Complete
Construction on a key new section of the Bethany Road and Mason-Montgomery Road Bike Path is now complete. A collaboration with the City of Mason, the project connects the bike path at Windemere Way with the Bethany Road Roundabout and extends it from the roundabout to the existing path in Deerfield Township's Fleckenstein Park.
The pathways provide important pedestrian access to the park for those who reside in surrounding areas. Additionally, they serve as an integral connection for the township to the Little Miami Scenic Trail, as outlined in the City of Mason's Bike Path and Pedestrian Way Master Plan and Deerfield Township Comprehensive Plan.
You can read more about the township's plans for bike trails and pathways on our website.
