Bloomington Expected To Keep Grant Funding For Road Signs

The Federal Government recently rescinded a law mandating road and highway sign visibility. The law would have forced cities and towns across the country to replace many of their aging signs with larger, brighter ones.

Bloomington’s City Council decided in August to lower the speed limit on most neighborhood roads, since most of the signs would have to be replaced anyway.

According to Bloomington Director of Public Works Susie Johnson, despite the changing regulations, the city is still going to replace the speed limit signs with new ones.

The signs are expected to cost close to a million dollars. $600,000 will come from the city’s general fund, and $180,000 is still expected to come from public grant funding.
