Roadabout Construction Near WKU Slows Down Traffic Flow

"The construction will continue tonight and tomorrow night, from 6 am to 6 pm. There will be some lane closures. The intersection will still be open and functional, but there will be some lane closures there overnight. Wednesday morning we are hoping to do a little bit of lane shifting," said Wes Watt, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet 3 Public Information Officer.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- Construction is underway for a new roundabout near Western Kentucky University's campus.

Crews started working last night, at the intersection of Nashville Road, University Boulevard, 31-W Bypass and Loving Way.

The goal is to provide safety and easy flow at an extremely busy intersection.

A lot of construction is taking place on the sides of the roads and transportation officials suggest caution when traveling these roads.

"The construction will continue tonight and tomorrow night, from 6 am to 6 pm. There will be some lane closures. The intersection will still be open and functional, but there will be some lane closures there overnight. Wednesday morning we are hoping to do a little bit of lane shifting," said Wes Watt, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet 3 Public Information Officer.

The intersection will remain open during the lane shifting.
