Bicyclists riding in the 12th annual Community Ties Bike Tour on July 26 will help fund multi-purpose trail projects near Galena and Condit that will become part of the cross-state Ohio to Erie Trail.
Community Ties proceeds will help the Delaware County Friends of the Trail complete the Little Walnut Trestle Trail in Galena and the Meredith State Trail east of Condit, according to Dave Bender, DCFT president.
The Little Walnut Trestle project has received a $215,000 Clean Ohio Trail Fund grant, and project design is underway with bridge work and paving expected this year. The Meredith State Trail has received $100,000 in state funding toward preparation and future paving.
