Economic woes put “Bike City USA” on hold

The mayor of Columbus, Ohio has pledged to create “Bike City USA” in the state’s capital, but the recession of the past several years have put much of these plans on hold. Many projects are “shovel ready,” but just lack funding. It seems that transportation officials, advocates, and the general public are taking a “wait and see” approach as to whether the latest uptick in the economy (real or perceived) will result in any change.

See this article in the Columbus Dispatch and this video report from NBC 4 for details and interviews.
