Stadium Scoreboard Work to Impact Traffic & Parking
Beginning Tuesday, July 12, construction crews will begin work on the west side of Commonwealth Stadium (Nicholasville Road side) in order to replace the large stadium scoreboard. A portion of the northbound lane near this end of Commonwealth Stadium will be blocked.
Some parking spaces in the Blue Lot may be unavailable at times during the project due to equipment or material loading and unloading. Motor vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic may be affected throughout the construction. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians who normally park in or drive through the area should allow extra time in their commute.
The project is expected to last until Friday, August 19 and should not impact parking or transit operations during campus move-in or the beginning of the fall semester.
As always, construction is weather-dependent and the timetable is subject to change.
Members of the campus community are encouraged to tune into 1700 AM (WQKH 253) to hear campus parking and transportation information. The station broadcasts 24 hours, 7 days a week.
