*UPDATE** GARBAGE TRUCK ON FIRE ON NATCHER PARKWAY NEAR MP 10 IN BOWLING GREEN PDF Print
Thursday, 08 August 2013 13:54

UPDATE:  The Northbound lanes of the Natcher Parkway are still blocked due the this vehicle fire.  It is anticipated that it will take an additional 1 to 2 hours to re-open the lanes.  Traffic Northbound is being detoured onto US 231 toward Morgantown in the meanwhile.

A garbage truck is on fire on the right shoulder of the Natcher Parkway Northbound near MP 10.  Both Northbound lanes are currently closed while the Southbound lanes remain open.  Crews are heading to the scene to assess at this point.  It is possible that a detour for Northbound traffic will be established that utilizes US 231 from Bowling Green to Morgantown, depending upon closure duration.

Motorists are encouraged to choose other routes for Northbound travel on the Natcher Parkway and updates will be provided as to closure status of this roadway.
