Roads need money for repairs, not D.O.T. spending money on bike trails. Not at this time.

The money does come from the D.O.T
Knox County Heart of Ohio Trail $1,760,000


the list of 11 projects to receive funding for the 2010-11 budget cycle is new construction along the Heart of Ohio Trail in Knox County. This $2.2 million project (including a $1.7 million award from ODOT) will add to the Ohio to Erie Trail, which will eventually span the state from Cincinnati to Cleveland with easily accessible, paved trails that are separated from highways and automobiles.

These federal dollars are part of ODOTs Transportation Enhancement Program, which annually provides approximately $21 million for project
Since 1992, ODOT has invested more than $148 million in federal Transportation Enhancement funds to bicycle trail projects.

In larger cities, these funds are distributed by regional Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO). ODOT sets aside additional funds to partner with smaller communities outside of MPO boundaries, offering to fund up to 80% of the cost for construction on these projects
