A Bowling Green Municipal Utility (BGMU) project will temporarily close a section of the U.S. 31-W Bypass in Bowling Green next week. The U.S. 31-W Bypass will close between U.S. 231 Broadway Avenue and E. 13 Avenue beginning Monday, Aug. 15 at 6 a.m. The roadway is expected to open by afternoon of Friday, Aug. 19. The work schedule is weather dependent.

A signed detour using E. 13 Avenue, Kenton Street, and Broadway Avenue will be in place. Local access on the U.S. 31-W Bypass will be maintained as much as possible, however, local traffic may have to use the alleyways for access. Motorists should expect heavy traffic, delays, and should seek alternate route if possible. Message boards are being put in place today to communicate to motorists of the upcoming closure. 

The traffic signal at the U.S 31-W Bypass/U.S. 231 Broadway Avenue intersection will be adjusted to a three-phase signal program and eliminate the U.S. 31-W access toward E. 13 Avenue. This closure is one of a series of closures that will take place in the coming weeks and months by BGMU. More information on those will be released as a later date.
