Mon. 3/28: Allen St. Bikeway Public Meeting

The City of Bloomington Public Works Department is hosting a meeting on Monday, March 28 at 5:30pm at the Free Methodist Church, Grimes Lane and S. Lincoln Street. (where we hold our monthly meetings) to discuss bicycle infrastructure improvements along Allen Street. They will be seeking input on a variety of possible tools to make these streets more attractive for bicycles. The meeting is open to the general public.

The initial plan would include simple striping, shared lane markings, and signage; there is also potential to change stop sign orientation to allow bikes to have right of way. All improvements will be pilot projects since this is the city's first "bike boulevard," part of a plan to improve bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure throughout the city.

They will also be seeking input on some intermediate and long-term options--these might include a pedestrian/bike median at Walnut and signalization options.
