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:

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.
