2024 Solar Eclipse

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada.  On this date, people within a 124-mile-wide band in the state of Ohio will experience a total solar eclipse. The City of Bowling Green is within this band.  This will be an exciting celestial event and we want Bowling Green residents and our visitors to enjoy the day safely.

The City has been planning for the eclipse with the Wood County Emergency Management team, the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce, Bowling Green State University, and other community partners under the recommendations and guidance from the Ohio Emergency Management team.    

We are expecting travelers from around Ohio and other states to visit the areas of totality.  Challenges that eclipse viewers and residents may expect include:

  • Heavy to gridlocked traffic conditions before and after the eclipse;
  • Travelers stopped on roadways (heat, water, food, bathroom challenges);
  • Limited cell phone service due to heightened network use; and
  • Potentially limited food and gasoline availability on the routes due to an influx of travelers.
