Ground is being broken for the Medlar Bikeway Project, a new two-phase portion of the regional bikeway system that will allow access from the Great Miami River Trail north of Crains Run Park and from the southwest corner of Medlar and Miamisburg-Springboro roads.
Phase I will begin this summer in the Five Rivers MetroParks Medlar Conservation Area. Phase II will link the Austin Interchange area at I-75 to the Great Miami River Bikeway system. Construction is expected to take about five months with a public opening in the fall.
Partners in the project include Five Rivers MetroParks, Miami Township, Montgomery County Transportation Improvement District, RG Properties, City of Miamisburg, Montgomery County, and Miamisburg City School District.
