One northern Kentucky city is doing what it can to ensure that business stays up while one of the main roads is closed down for summer construction.

A sanitation project in Bellevue from Taylor Avenue through Fairfield Avenue, KY Route 8, will force the main road through the city to be closed, which is expected to have a big impact on businesses in the area. 

Merchants say they will offer a couple ways to incentivize shopping in the district. 

The "First Friday" shopping event this month will take place Friday, July 14 and is themed "Lucky Sevens.”

From 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., shoppers will earn $5 in "Bellevue Bucks" for every $20 spent on Fairfield Avenue. Those bucks can be redeemed during the construction period that started Monday.

Shoppers can earn up to $100 in “Bellevue Bucks" on Friday night when no construction is taking place.

Bellevue is also pushing the "Endure the Detour" promotion.

For each purchase at a Fairfield Avenue business, shoppers will receive an entry to win $250 in “Bellevue Bucks.” Shoppers will receive one entry for each business that is patronized each day.

There is no limit to the total number of entries.
