Ribbon Cutting Held for Smallhouse Road Realignment

BOWLING GREEN, KY (12/4/12) – Mayor Bruce Wilkerson and Judge Executive Mike Buchanon spoke in the parking lot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Smallhouse Road.

The realignment of Smallhouse Road is now complete. The project has been in planning for four years. Construction began in August with the developer Smallhouse Road Partners, Inc.
 
According to Wilkerson, there have been 87 car accidents at the intersection of Smallhouse and Cave Mill Road in the past 4 years.
 
“This intersection has been a safety concern,” Buchanon said.
 
A stoplight has been placed at the intersection to prevent long lines of waiting during rush hour as well as to help prevent accidents.
 
According to the city of Bowling Green’s website, the new section of roadway was built in a portion of what is now parking lot at the LDS church, with the existing Smallhouse Road in front of Massey Springs being permanently closed. Sassafras Street's access to Smallhouse will also close, making it a dead end.
 
The ribbon cutting took place at approximately 2 p.m. on Monday.
