Students, faculty and staff at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College and Western Kentucky University in Elizabethtown may need to make some changes to their routes as fall semester classes start Aug. 15.
College Street Road, one of the main routes to the college, is closed indefinitely at the 31W Bypass. People entering ECTC should give themselves plenty of extra time to find and take alternate routes, including St. John’s Road off the Bypass to University Drive, and College Street Road from Route 62. A new connector road between College Street Road and Ring Road has recently been opened to help expedite traffic. West Park Road connects at Ring Road on the west side of the Remington Arms building and east of the Addington Transportation building on College Street Road.
Anyone who chooses to use University Drive should drive with caution, especially in the afternoon when the University Drive ball fields are being used by youth baseball leagues. Cars park along the side of the road and large numbers of children are in the area.
ECTC administration is working with Elizabethtown police to assure that traffic moves as smoothly as possible. Allow plenty of time for detours, construction and traffic delays.
