Roundabout - What's the Deal?
US-31W near the campus of WKU
The modern roundabout project in Bowling Green opened to the public on August 8, 2014. The introduction of the modern roundabout system has had a tremendous positive impact to the intersection of the U.S. 31-W, University Boulevard and Loving Way near the campus of WKU. The modern roundabout has eliminated long waits created by a traffic signal, improved safety and made the intersection much more efficient. In addition to the positive traffic impacts the overall design and landscaping of the modern roundabout has created an eye-catching landmark to the community. In September of 2014, the KYTC and WKU received the Operation P.R.I.D.E. Chairman's Award for the contributions to the roundabout project.
