The City of Bloomington is working with consulting firm Toole Design Group to develop a multimodal transportation plan. The plan will be used to help prioritize transportation projects, to determine right-of-way widths, and to shape transportation in our community for years to come. 

The Transportation Plan: Latest Version

The Plan Commission reviewed, amended, and issued a positive recommendation of the Transportation Plan at their Special Hearing on November 8, 2018. The amended Transportation Plan, including appendices can be accessed here. The Transportation Plan will be heard and reviewed by the City Council in January 2019. Meeting dates will be posted as soon as available. This Plan was uploaded on December 20, 2018.

Summary of Process: January to July 2018 

Toole Design Consultants visited Bloomington in January 2018. They hosted two public meetings, held meetings with stakeholders, and hosted open studio hours. The consultants developed a Survey and Wiki Map that was posted online and approximately 250 people provided input via the survey and/or the mapping tool. The links below provide the pdf presentation from each of the two public meetings. Additionally, the meetings can be viewed on CATS with the link below. 

Since January, the consultants compiled and reviewed all the input from the community. They read and referenced the Comprehensive Plan as it defines the vision and goals for transportation in Bloomington. The consultants also reviewed available data including traffic counts on many streets throughout the community.They took this information and created a draft plan.

Next Steps: 

The plan will be presented to the City Council for review, comment, and adoption. We aim for this process to take place in January 2019. Meeting dates will be posted as soon available.
