A block of the B-Line Trail downtown between Sixth Street and Kirkwood Avenue will be temporarily closed beginning March 19. The closure will last for three to four weeks. The trail will be closed for public safety during construction on the exterior of The Foundry 304 condominium complex, located next to the B-Line. Contractors require access via the B-Line Trail to load and lift brick for exterior masonry on the building. Signs indicating the trail is closed, and directing pedestrians and trail users to the sidewalk on the east side of Morton Street, will be posted at each end of the closed section of trail.

The B-Line Trail parking lot at Grimes Lane is open for vehicle parking and trail access. The B-Line Trail/Bloomington Rail Trail trailhead at Country Club Drive is temporarily closed during the City of Bloomington Utilities Department sewer line installation project.

Parking to access the B-Line trail is available on Fairview Street at Rev. Ernest D. Butler Park.

The B-Line Trail extends a total of 3.1 miles from Adams Street to Country Club Drive. The B-Line connects to the Bloomington Rail Trail at Country Club Drive, offering a total of 5.1 miles of trail.

The trail is lighted with energy-efficient LED lights. The lights are on from dusk to dawn. The B-Line Trail is paved and is completely accessible. Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the B-Line Trail, with the exception of pedal-assist electric bikes and motorized wheelchairs.
