New bike lanes are coming to Slavic Village as part of the Warner Road Rehabilitation Project. The Warner Road Project will extend from Grand Division Avenue to Broadway Avenue. The project is scheduled to be finished in December 2016.
Mill Creek Falls
In a piece on
Freshwater Cleveland, Slavic Village Development Corp Executive Director Chris Alvarado said-
"Six-foot-wide bike lanes will replace diagonal parking spots on both sides of the street, stretching from the entrance of the
Mill Creek Falls reservation to Grand Division Avenue on the border of Garfield Heights.
The new bike lanes will create a safe pedestrian passageway, as existing parking spaces are often used as though traffic areas by drivers. Additionally, installation of much-needed biking options is taking place as strategic efforts, like
Mill Creek Trail, aim to connect Cleveland via bike and walking paths.
Eventually, the Warner Road bike trail can be a single link in a five-mile biking and pedestrian access chain that runs all the way downtown. It can also serve as an amenity that helps draw new residents to the community."
Slavic Village is working with the City of Cleveland to link bike lanes to the
Morgana Run Trail, a two-mile bicycling and walking path which connects to the
Towpath Trail and the Cleveland Metroparks Garfield Park Reservation.
Registration is now open for the 2016 Towpath Trilogy.
The Towpath Trilogy consists of the Towpath Half in April, the Towpath Ten-Ten in June and the the Towpath Marathon in October. The Trilogy shows off different sections of the Towpath Trail at different times of the year.
The Trilogy features a variety of race lengths to accommodate runners (and walkers!) of all experience levels.
The Ohio & Erie Canalway is a National Heritage Area, designated by Congress to help preserve and celebrate the rails, trails, landscapes, towns and sites that grew up along the first 110 miles of the canal that helped Ohio and our nation grow.
