Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning

Proposed Statewide Bicycle Routes

ODOT has proposed a statewide network of bicycle routes. Eastgate is responsible for coordinating the effort in Mahoning, Trumbull and Ashtabula Counties. The proposed routes are available as a web map. Contact Bethaney Krzys for more information or to submit comments.

Bicycle Suitability Map

A bicycle suitability map was added as a new product in 2012 after numerous requests for such a map, and in an effort to consolidate several local mapping initiatives into one cohesive regional effort. The map’s color-coded roads will help cyclists in Mahoning and Trumbull Counties find the most appropriate route for their comfort level and will help local planners and engineers identify where trouble spots and disconnects exist.

The maps are available in the Eastgate Map Center.

Pedestrian Inventory

An analysis of aerial photographs and other sources resulted in a map showing the locations of ADA ramps, painted crosswalks and sidewalks. The maps are available in the Eastgate Map Center.

Regional Bicycle Plan

The status of the area's bicycle projects are outlined in the Regional Bicycle Plan.

Great Ohio Lake-to-River Greenway

One of the most noted bikeways in the area is the Great Ohio Lake-to-River Greenway (GOLTRG). The GOLTRG is a 10-foot wide asphalt shared-use path being built on former railroad lines and adjacent corridors.

When completed, it will be a 110 mile multi-modal transportation corridor which will connect Lake Erie to the Ohio River. The GOLTRG will begin on the shores of Lake Erie at Ashtabula Harbor, pass through Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana Counties, and end at the banks of the Ohio River in East Liverpool.

The GOLTRG has been a regional effort, with different communities and organizations taking the lead on various sections of the bikeway. As a result, a majority of the greenway is either constructed or programmed for construction in the near future.
