Plans for $24 million Dayton Riverfront Commons project revealed

Cincinnati-based KZF architecture and engineering design firm has revealed the design plans for a riverfront project in Dayton that is part of the Riverfront Commons Trail. Eric Anderson of KZF presented renderings of the riverfront walkway and answered questions about the plans during a recent public meeting in Dayton.

Dayton’s unique riverfront design plans incorporate the entire riverfront shoreline from the Bellevue-Dayton border of O’Fallon Avenue east to the Route 8 entrance of the Ohio River floodwall. Once the project is completed, the pathway will connect the river cities of Dayton, Bellevue, Newport, Covington, Ludlow and Fort Thomas, a walking/biking/running artery known as the Riverfront Commons Trail.

“The Riverfront Commons project showcases Dayton’s desire to provide our citizens with easier and safer access to economic hubs in the region through means of alternative transportation,” said Dayton City Manager Michael Giffen. “At the same time, projects like this will bring people from all over the region to Dayton, which allows us to highlight the strong economic opportunities here, both residential and commercial. It also doesn’t hurt that this project will provide beautiful scenic views of the river, new development and other features unique to Dayton.”
