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.


Design consultant selection is ongoing. See attached RFI. Addendum 1 is also attached below.
