Bloomington council considers $775,000 for O’Neil pool design work | Local News

Constitution Trail 

Also on Monday, council members will consider committing support for a $1.3 million project to extend Constitution Trail.

The resolution is part of an application seeking $1,041,228 in funding through the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program, with the city committing to a $342,557 match, according to a memo to council members.  

If the city receives the grant, additional council approval would still be required to move forward with the project.

The proposed project would encompass two Constitution Trail additions: extending the trail from Lincoln Street to Bunn Street along the Norfolk Southern Railway, and then along Bunn Street to Hamilton Road.

Because of the grant requirements, the portion of the trail between Lincoln and Lafayette Streets would be completed as a “planned, future, locally funded project,” officials said. 

A planned future segment would complete the “backbone” that connects the south and west sides of the city.
