Construction on 10th Street, again

I saw in the HT today that 10th Street at Bypass will have lane restrictions much of Friday, March 11th, (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.) for a water main project. You may want to take 3rd Street into town on that day.

Between widening of the Bypass, construction of the Cyber Infrastructure Building at 10th and Bypass, and eventual widening of SR 45 (10th Street) to Russell Road, I'm sure we will see many more such closings and lane restrictions.

Personally, I'm just glad we have an exit from the neighborhood onto Smith Road.

State of the City 2011

Mayor Mark Kruzan gave his annual State of the City address earlier this week. Please click through and read the text for his full comments if you haven't already. There is a lot of interesting information in the speech.

Of particular note for the neighborhood, I wanted to point out that Bloomington is instituting a citywide 25 mph speed limit in neighborhoods. As new street signs are put up, you will notice the reduced speed limit in neighborhoods, including our own.
