Bloomington to consider making roads more bicycle-friendly

BLOOMINGTON - Blooming City Council members are considering a proposal that would make the city's streets more friendly for cyclists.

Under the proposal, there would be an increase in the number of dedicated bike lanes on city streets, as well as an increase in road markings known as "sharrows," which indicate that bicycles and cars may share a lane of traffic.  Additionally, bike lanes would connect with the Constitution Trail, which goes through Bloomington and Normal.

The city's mayor, Tari Renner, supports the plan, saying that it would help make the city more sustainable.  The Bloomington City Council will vote on the proposal on May 11.
