Road work

Bloomington is still working on its summer improvement plans for city roads, according to a city press release. The Department of Public Works' Street Division will continue road paving this week on the following roads as long as weather permits.

  • East Treadwell Lane west of North Headley Road, June 17
  • East 15th Street from north Walnut Street to north Dunn Street, June 18-20

The city has a website for people to check road closures and lane restrictions.

Road work on North Jordan Avenue continues on schedule, according to the release.

The 17th Street construction is still underway and is now closed to through traffic due to safety concerns.

Sidewalk construction

The street division is working in coordination with the utilities department to install sidewalks in the 1500 and 1600 blocks of East Maxwell Street. Lane restrictions are in place on East Maxwell as the utilities department installs a new water main on adjacent South Mitchell Street.

Brighten B-town initiative

The Brighten B-town initiative has been working to clean up and repaint curbs around the city. Since beginning April 1, there has been 13,568 linear feet of curb painted and 3,695 pounds of curbside debris cleaned up.
