What is a Neighborhood Greenway?

Neighborhood Greenways are low-speed, low-volume, shared-space streets that support high comfort walking and bicycling connections. The City of Bloomington Transportation Plan designates several City streets for the design and installation of Neighborhood Greenway facilities as part of the Priority Bicycle Facilities Network. To design and install Neighborhood Greenways, the City follows the Staff-led Traffic Calming and Neighborhood Greenways process. 

What should I expect?

Neighborhood Greenways are an important component of the community’s plans to support an improved quality of life and connectivity. Past Neighborhood Greenway projects have shown an increase in the number of people walking, rolling, and bicycling in the area.

Residents may still park and drive on the Neighborhood Greenway. Traffic calming devices such as speed humps and bump outs reduce the likelihood that drivers will speed on these streets.
