A roundabout project is scheduled to start March 20 by the City of Bowling Green. 

Taking place near East Wooster Street and Campbell Hill Road, construction is anticipated to be complete by Aug. 1, according to the city’s press release. 

Drivers should watch for intermittent traffic delays and closures should be expected over the next several months. 

Construction will start with installing temporary traffic signals, and then replacing the water lines. 

Campbell Hill Road will remain open throughout this phase but access to Alumni Drive will be restricted to Mercer Road during the project. 

Once the water lines are completed, work will begin to focus on the area of the roundabout nearest to the Stroh Center parking lot. 

The second phase of the project will focus on the southern portion nearest to Burger King and Circle K. 

Access to Campbell road will be prohibited during this phase of construction. 

Phase three will revolve around the construction of the decorative median between the newly constructed roundabout and the existing I-75 roundabouts. 

Finally, construction will include final paving and striping of the work area.
