Bike path flooding

Hocking River flood water is seen crossing a section of bike path Friday, Feb. 8, 2019. This same area of the bike path was damaged in 2018 by high water. Ron Lucas, Athens deputy service-safety director, said the repair was intended to help prevent future damage, not to raise the path high enough to prevent water from going over it. “We’ll take a look at it after it recedes to see if any damage was done,” Lucas said.
