Bowling Green Corvette Plant Tours To Cease On June 163
If you had plans to take a tour of the Bowling Green Corvette assembly plant, you may want to bump them up. The National Corvette Museum gave notice saying plant tours at the Corvette’s birthplace will end on June 16, 2017.

The Bowling Green assembly plant will shut down to make improvements and upgrades for the 2018 model year of Corvette, as previously reported. The shutdown itself will take place during the third and fourth quarters of 2017. However, General Motors has stated this will not impact availability of the 2017 C7 Corvette and its variants.
In the meantime, the National Corvette Museum and the NCM Motorsports Park will be happy to have you while Bowling Green works to improve its operations, and maybe even gear up for the 2018 C7 Corvette ZR1.

That is right before the Hot Rod Power Tour is in Bowling Green. That will be the second time in a row I have been in Bowling Green and the plant is not open for tours 🙁
The article is not clear as to the fact if they will ever return. Ist this a permanent ending of just during shutdown?
You are right, the article is not clear, but I’m quite sure that the ceasing of the tours is temporary. They do this most years as they retool the assembly line and give the staff a few weeks off.
Of course, the employees don’t get much vacation time while the line is moving, so they pretty much all take time off at the same time during this retooling time.
