Boone County plans ‘CVG trail’

0

Boone County is planning a 4.6-mile pedestrian path near the northern portion of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).

The 10-foot-wide, 4.6-mile trail, currently called the CVG Trail, will stretch from Conner Road in Hebron, along KY 20, to Mineola Pike in Erlanger. The trail will be for pedestrians and bicycles only, creating a path near the airport’s north property.

The county has budgeted $5 million for the project, noting that Boone County funds are 50% of the cost and the rest comes from federal funding.

Director of Public Works Rob Franxman said the money came from a grant approved by the Ohio Kentucky Indiana (OKI) Regional Council of Governments in 2021. He said the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is releasing $310,000 of federal funds for the design of the project. Franxman said the project design will be tendered as early as November and construction costs are expected to be budgeted in fiscal year 2025.

The path will be similar in design and purpose to the 5.2-mile loop trail near Cincinnati’s Lunken Airport, county officials said.
