River Trail Phase 2 Ribbon Cutting

The City of Sylvania's RIBBON CUTTING for Phase 2 of the community River Trail was held on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 4:00 pm.

The River Trail Phase 2 links with the first phase of the River Trail and is an integral part of the Sylvania Area Bikeways Plan.  The combined phases now connect the east side of US23 to the Sylvania Downtown Business District.   The Sylvania River Trail is a treasured recreational resource for Sylvania and regional citizens.  It is a beautiful setting for our non-vehicular travelers.

We look forward to seeing you on November 7th! For additional info, contact Debbie Webb – 419-885-8965 or Email: dwebb@cityofsylvania.com

Sylvania River Trail Closures

The Sylvania River Trail will be closed for construction. The Phase I section that runs from Main Street to Harroun will be closed indefinitely for the SOMO construction. You can access the trail behind Root or the Lathrop House to transit to Harroun Rd. The Phase II section that runs from Harroun to Monroe will be closed until early November depending on the weather. There is a tentative ribbon cutting on November 7th, check back for updates.

More Bike Lanes for West Bancroft

West Bancroft Bike Lanes
View from I-475 Bridge looking East toward Holland-Sylvania Rd

If you commute on Bancroft Street between I-475 and Holland-Sylvania, you will be happy to see new pavement and the addition of bike lanes. The road condition has been poor for many years and not an easy route for cyclists. Look for completion later this month (September 2019). Thank you City of Toledo!

Fix-it Repair Stations - We Need Your Help

It's been four years since the first Fix-it Stations were installed in the Toledo area, you can read about that here. Since that time, we now have stations at UT, City of Toledo and City of Oregon, and those not counted yet. Needless to say, the Fix-it Stations and Air Pumps are a big asset to area cyclists! That is until you try to use the air pump and it lets the air out of your tire...not fun!

We Are Traffic has been contracted by Metroparks and the Univerisity of Toledo to maintain their respective hardware, but we need to know something is broken to schedule a repair. Please help us out by letting us know if you find a Fix-it Station / Air Pump in need or repair and we'll work with owners to have it repaired as soon as possible. For repairs, fill out our contact form.

We would also like to know where bike parking is needed. As an advocacy dealer for Dero Bike Racks, the majority of our funding is through the sale and installation of bike racks.

New Bike Lanes on West Sylvania Avenue

This "Bike Lane Ends" sign will need to be moved very soon! When the thermo-plastic striping sets on the new pavement along W. Sylvania Avenue, you will find new bike lanes that extend from King Road to the round-a-bout at Centennial Road. Originally, the westbound bike lane turned left on King Road and ends at the University Parks Trail. About two years ago, We Are Traffic worked with Lucas County Engineering on reviewing the striping plans for the project that extends from just west of McCord Road to Centennial Road. We noticed that the existing bike lanes would return but there were no plans to expand the lanes westward. We asked for the bike lanes to be extended to Centennial Road and after careful review, Lucas County Engineering agreed to include in the project.

The top course has been applied so we can look for the new bike lanes to be in place very soon! Thank you Lucas County Engineering and City of Sylvania!
