The Bowling Green community will celebrate Independence Day with a variety of activities today and will culminate with a 10 p.m. fireworks display at the Bowling Green State University Intramural Fields.
Following the event, the Bowling Green Police Division will implement a traffic exit strategy to aid in traffic flow. In order to maximize safety and efficiency of travel, the police will be directing traffic onto predetermined routes. After the fireworks, Mercer Road will be closed between Stadium Drive and Ridge Street. In conjunction, the police will be requiring traffic to exit via the following routes:
• North exit route (Ice Arena lot, Stadium Drive): will be directed north to Poe Road or west to Merry.
• South exit route (lots to the south of the stadium): will be directed to Wooster via Mercer or Alumni.
In other cases, depending on traffic patterns, police may be directing vehicles to the “outer belt” of the city to aid in traffic movement. For example, Clough Street traffic will be directed to Napoleon to reduce traffic on Wooster Street. Event attendees, or those traveling in the Bowling Green area tonight, are encouraged to utilize outlying routes and entrances to I-75 at U.S. 6 or Ohio 582 in lieu of the Wooster entrance for I-75. Attendees are asked to be alert and mindful of the directions provided by police. For the safety of all, those attending need to follow the directions of the police and should not circumvent barricades.
