(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington Planning & Transportation Department will be hosting a public meeting to gather input about a transportation project located along Winslow Road and Henderson Street.

A short description of the project is provided below and additional information is available on the project webpage at bloomington.in.gov/WinslowHenderson.

The public meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 10th, from 6 p.m. till 7:30 p.m. in the
City Hall Council Chambers, 401 N Morton St.

The meeting will begin with a brief presentation, but will primarily be in an open house format. Attendees are welcome to arrive at any time between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

After the meeting, the City will post relevant materials on the project webpage and continue to collect input until August 24th. Neighborhood organizations are welcome and are encouraged to share this information with others who may be interested.

Project Description:

This project will construct a multiuse path on Winslow Road between Walnut Street and Henderson Street, a multiuse path on Henderson Street from Winslow Road to approximately 650 feet north of Winslow Road, intersection improvements for Winslow Road at Walnut Street Pike, and short sidewalk connections to adjacent facilities as necessary.

Improvements at the intersection of Winslow Road and Walnut Street Pike are proposed in response to complaints from users and a documented pattern of crashes at the intersection. The current design concept would alter the southern leg of the intersection so that northbound vehicles on Walnut Street Pike would only be able to turn right (east) on Winslow Road and would not be able to go straight (north) or left (west). This intersection concept would also include safety and accessibility improvements for sidewalk and multiuse path users.

Project designs are still conceptual and have not been finalized. Feedback based on local experience frequently results in modifications to initial project proposals. If feasible, modifications to this proposal can be made after all input has been received. Residents are encouraged to comment on the project and suggest improvements.
