BOWLING GREEN, KY (WBKO ) -- The roundabout project at the intersection of U.S. 31-W, University Boulevard and Loving Way in Bowling Green was awarded to Scotty’s Contracting and Stone LLC.

The bidding deadline was Friday, April 25. Scotty’s was the only bid on the project and was higher than the original estimate, but an awards committee in Frankfort made the decision Monday, to go ahead with the project.

The project was awarded $3,892,185.65. The original estimate was $2,969,733.54.

The construction part of the roundabout is scheduled to start in late May, after Western Kentucky University adjourns for the summer. The bulk of the project will be done in early August, before WKU returns for the fall semester. A more detailed construction schedule will be released when it becomes available.

Utility work is already underway, costing an estimated $2.1 million.
