BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Work will begin June 13 on a new roundabout at the intersection of Westen Street and Rockingham Avenue.

The City of Bowling Green stated the roadwork will result in the closures of portions of these roads. Rockingham Avenue will be closed near the intersection, and Westen Street will be closed from Patrick Way to Rockingham Avenue.

The closures will be from June 13  at 6 a.m. until Aug. 10 at 5 p.m.

People who need to get to offices and homes on Rockingham Avenue will still be able to access the road but will have to use the detours available.

The city stated the roundabout will create better traffic flow at the intersection.

All work is scheduled to be complete before the start of the new school year in August.
