Project Description:

This project will construct a new sidewalk on the south/east side of 10th Street from Smith Road to Deckard Drive; a pedestrian crossing of 10th Street at Deckard Drive including a median refuge, signage, striping, and curb ramps; and school zone flashing beacons along 10th Street near the crossing.

Project designs are still conceptual and have not been finalized. Feedback based on local experience frequently results in modifications to initial project proposals. Please come discuss the project with us and let us know what improvements you'd like to see!

Funding for the design of these improvements is provided through the Common Council

Sidewalk Committee. At this time, no construction funding has been identified. The City of Bloomington is partnering with the Monroe County Community School Corporation (MCCSC) and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to complete this important project.
