Bloomington Streets

The City of Bloomington created this web page to focus primarily on upcoming street/sidewalk projects funded through Local Motor Fuel Tax (LMFT). This is in addition to signage, flyers, social media posts, and press releases the City will provide in order to keep the public informed about street maintenance projects in the City. The revenue generated by the now eight-cent LMFT, and one-quarter of one percent of the Home Rule Sales Tax, is kept separate in a special fund that can only be utilized for this work.,

Local Motor Fuel Tax and Home Rule Sales Tax collected in FY2020 to date total $5,810,527 and expenditures total $4,021,669. Please note, there is a time lag between when LMFT is collected and when it is reported.

FY 2021 and FY 2022 Resurfacing Plan
Public Works provided a resurfacing presentation for discussion during the Committee of the Whole meeting on March 16, 2020. In addition to the video of the presentation below, the following materials are available to download:

Bloomington on Track with Aggressive Roadwork Programs

Post Date:08/08/2019 11:51 AM

Bloomington, IL - The City has completed four major street projects and is making progress on a fifth as part of new, more aggressive programs for street and sidewalk improvement. The programs include resurfacing pavement, using pavement preservation, patching pavement, repairing vertical displacement in sidewalks, and repairing ramps and sidewalk panels.

The City’s contractors have completed roadwork on Main Street, from Front Street to East Street; Monroe Street, from Madison Street to East Street, Fairway Drive/Regency Drive, from Robinhood Lane to Oakland Avenue and Front Street, from Madison Street to East Street. Major sidewalk projects have included sections at Miller Park, South Madison Street, East Taylor, Dimmitt’s Grove and Oakridge subdivision.

The next major roadwork project includes Market Street, from Howard Street to Roosevelt Street, and several adjacent blocks, which staff estimates will be complete by late summer. Upcoming major sidewalk projects include West Jackson, West Taylor and West Jefferson. A list of streets that will undergo pavement preservation will be released in early fall.

Pavement Ratings
Public Works rates streets using the 10-point Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating (PASER) system, with 10 as the best rating. The Department manages a regularly-updated, interactive, Geographic Information System map. A simplified version of the map is available below. Dark red to light red colors indicate ratings 1-5, and light green to dark green colors indicate ratings 6-10. Click here to view the full interactive pavement rating map in a new window.
