Virtual Public Meeting, May 13, 2021:

The City hosted a virtual public meeting on Thursday, May 13, 2021, to discuss the proposed design of the 1st St Reconstruction project.  At the meeting, exhibits of the proposed design were discussed and time was provided for feedback and questions.

Video recording of the meeting can be found here: Public Meeting Video

Public Input:

The City values input from residents and welcomes you to provide your input here.

Project Summary:

This project will reconstruct 1st Street between Fairview Street and College Avenue. Work may extend west as far as Patterson Drive or as far east as Walnut Street depending on detailed design. The project is expected to include one travel lane in each direction; likely replacement of water, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer infrastructure; tree plots separating the road from sidewalks on both sides of the street; traffic calming or other enhancements consistent with the Bloomington Transportation Plan’s designation as a Neighborhood Greenway route; and other features as necessary. The project would coordinate closely with redevelopment efforts for the adjacent hospital site. This project is expected to require some right of way acquisition.
