Lovers Lane Widening Project in Bowling Green is Complete
Posted: 18-Aug-2009 12:07AM CDT
From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 3 on August 4, 2009:
Lovers Lane reconstruction complete
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. When originally built more than 60 years ago, Lovers Lane was exactly that a single, gravel lane just barely wide enough for one vehicle. It served as a farm-to-market road for families in the surrounding countryside.
Families along the lane took care of each other, said Betty Lou Smith, whose family has lived on Lovers Lane since the 1950s. If someone was sick or needed help with something on the farm, you could count on your neighbors. The lane connected us all and brought us together in times of need.
Lovers Lane is still connecting people, though time inevitably brings change. Today, the onetime country lane is a modern, five-lane highway, thanks to a major reconstruction that was celebrated today.
Bowling Green Greenway Project Moving Ahead
Posted: 1-Jul-2005 3:46AM CDT
Perhaps by the end of 2006, Bowling Green residents will be able to walk along a greenway from the Lovers Lane Soccer Complex to the Riverfront Park. Construction of a section of the greenway from Riverfront Park to Kereiakes Park should be complete this fall. This will connect to part of the greenway that was completed as part of the Cemetery Road (KY 234) widening project. Another section of the greenway will be constructed as part of the Lovers Lane (KY 880) widening project.
Seventh Street Extension Project Underway in Bowling Green
Posted: 30-Apr-2005 5:52AM CDT
A project to extend Seventh Street has begun in Bowling Green. The project will tie together US 68/KY 80, KY 185, KY 234, and KY 880 and will include the construction of a new underpass under the CSX railroad.
The reporter for the Daily News refers the project as part of a four lane loop; however, KY 880 is far from a four lane loop. The road is two lanes from KY 234 to US 231 east of downtown and from US 68/KY 80 to KY 1435 southwest of downtown.
