Prepare for Road Closings Near Roundabout Construction

By Kayla Vanover | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- Construction continues near WKU , as the “roundabout project” continues to develop.
Drivers can finally see progress on the road, as new routes for the roundabout are being poured.
Road officials have confirmed Chestnut Street and Loving Way will remain closed, until the entire project is complete.
Although most of the closings are consistent, one major change will happen July 6.
That is when University Boulevard is scheduled to close, at the intersection of University Boulevard and Normal Street. The closing is scheduled to take place at six o'clock in the evening.
"The detour is up on our website and Facebook page. It utilizes Campbell Lane and Russellville Road, US 31-W. So, it can add significant time to your travel. So, we just want everybody to know about that,” said Wes Watt, Kentucky Transportation Department.
Northbound and southbound lanes of Highway 31-W will remain open.
