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 Continuing Aggressive Roadwork Program with Pavement Preservation

Post Date:10/02/2019 3:26 PM

The City of Bloomington will begin this year's pavement preservation efforts on October 14 and finish the work by October 25. This year's program includes 70 road segments throughout the city. Maps and lists of the planned work can be found here.

Staff will install temporary “No Parking” signs the week of the work on each street. Parking restrictions will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the dates specified on each sign. Once the pavement preservation is installed, driveway access on each street will be restricted for up to 30 minutes, unless there is an emergency.

The City uses two types of pavement preservation: Reclamite and C85. Reclamite uses emulsion made up of specific petroleum oils and resins. The rejuvenating process keeps the pavement flexible, so both cracking and road fatigue are reduced. It also seals the pavement from air and water, slowing the oxidation process and reducing the loss of small aggregate. C85 is a restorative seal that is intended for asphalt that has deteriorated beyond the point that Reclamite alone is an effective treatment method for the surface. C85 is a petroleum-based emulsion product that is covered in lime screenings in order to mend the asphalt surface, sealing cracks and filling in voids. The product is designed to be kneaded into the surface by vehicular traffic once it has been applied. C85 is designed to maintain its flexibility over time, which helps to reduce cracking and weathering.

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.

2019 Roadwork Wrap-Up
At the Committee of the Whole meeting on November 18, 2019, Public Works provided a brief presentation to recap asphalt and concrete roadwork performed by City employees and contractors throughout 2019. This presentation provides an opportunity to show Council and the public the results of the various infrastructure programs and to recognize the people who contributed to the programs.
