A project that would connect downtown to hundreds of miles of area bike trails has secured an additional $1.5 million in funding. The Flight Line Trail project will transform a 6.5-mile former rail corridor into a multi-purpose bike trail. U.S. Rep. Mike Turner helped secure the funding for the project. “I am excited to partner with Mayor Mims, who has been a great champion of development throughout our city,” Turner tells the Dayton Business Journal. “By connecting the bike path with the rest of the system, it will attract activity, energy, and excitement.” The City of Dayton will begin design and construction work later this year after concluding acquisition negotiations with Norfolk Southern. A further timeline for the project has not been announced.
