Protective Bike Passage along Ohio Street

Ohio Street bike connectivity between the Inner and the Outer Harbor continues to look better and better. Currently there is a dedicated bike lane on the Ohio Street bridge, which is demarcated by posts. According to GObike Buffalo, the protected lane could be the first of its kind in the nation, considering that the lane is located on a lift bridge. The bridge has always been a precarious crossing due to the surface of the bridge, the lack of striping, and the trucks that roar across it. The new dedicated lane is a welcome addition to the Ohio Street Corridor (boulevard).

Heading further towards the Outer Harbor, along Ohio Street, there are new bike racks and waymarking signage that depicts the history of the Industrial Heritage Trail (the Shoreline Trail). The features are located directly across from Silo City – a site that attracts hundreds upon hundreds of cyclists throughout the year.
