The City is working on designing improvements to 17th Street, from Monroe Street to Grant Street, which will improve safety and accessibility for a mix of transportation options. The improvements are part of the City’s larger commitment to sustainability and quality of life for all residents.

The project involves changes along 17th Street including construction of a multiuse path along the north side of the street, construction of accessible sidewalk curb ramps, street resurfacing, and replacement of the existing traffic signal at the intersection of 17th Street at Madison Street/Kinser Pike. The City will be acquiring additional right of way from some owners in the corridor in order to construct these improvements. Design of the project is underway now and construction is expected to begin in mid to late 2022.

The project is supported by federal funding as prioritized through the Bloomington Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The engineering design consultant for the project is Lochmueller Group.
