It is acknowledged that growth will occur throughout the Bloomington-Normal urbanized area – on all sides of the community. The goal of the East Side Highway EA is to identify improvements necessary on the east side which will accommodate managed growth and address future mobility and safety needs. As needs are identified and funding becomes available Bloomington, Normal, and McLean County will strive to be proactive accommodating planned growth throughout the community. For example, on the west side studies have been completed for the extension of Mitsubishi Motorway south of IL 9.
