University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services: Parking E-newsletter

Portion of University Drive to be Closed July 28-29

Due to work associated with the New Central residence hall project, the southbound lanes on University Drive will be closed starting on Saturday, July 28 until Sunday, July 29. The construction is to facilitate electrical service to the new housing area.

Near the intersection with Huguelet Drive, the existing northbound lane will be divided into two lanes to accommodate traffic flow. Traffic may still travel south on University Drive from Hilltop Avenue by following detour signs.

In order for one side of University Drive to contain two lanes of traffic, no parking will be permitted along the right side of the road during the work. Bike lanes will also be closed during this time period.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of the day on Sunday, July 29. However, as always, construction is weather-dependent and the timetable may 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.
