The Main Street Feasibility Study has proposed much-needed improvements to the Main Street corridor in Bloomington-Normal. Its proposals would make the corridor much more pedestrian and bicycle-friendly, including sidewalk improvements and a 6 foot wide bike lane. As residents of Bloomington-Normal, we support these proposals and encourage support from city leaders in Bloomington.

      I believe bike lines are integral for building and sustaining a healthy community. I bike 12 miles a day to and from work, Bloomington to Normal, and see it as a feasible mode of transportation to get anywhere in the Twin Cities. This is only possible, however, with safe lanes for bicycles between destinations.

      In these times, any transportation infrastructure efforts should consider and accomodate non-motorized means of transport. Go Bikes!!

      With all of the cyclists in this town I am amazed at the lack of bike lanes. If you build them, they will be used.
