BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The pedestrian-friendly city of Bloomington is pushing ahead in its quest to earn a platinum rating from the League of American Bicyclists by adding new biking paths.
The southern Indiana city has opened more than 20 miles of new biking and pedestrian paths this year and plans to add another 12 miles next year.
Mayor Mark Kruzan tells The Herald-Times that he and other city officials have been surprised by how fast the new trails have gone in.
Several of the bikeways and pedestrian paths connect areas on the outskirts of Indiana University to the campus.
All of the bike lanes, sidewalks and paths are part of a larger city plan to achieve a "platinum" rating that's the highest rating available from the League of American Bicyclists.
