No Campus Bus Service on Memorial Day

In observance of the Memorial Day holiday, University of Kentucky Transportation Services will not operate bus service on Monday, May 29. This includes the Blue and White Routes (Lextran 14) and the Green Route Connector (Lextran 26), as well as the Orange Route (UK HealthCare Route) and the Pink Route (Kentucky Clinic Route).

All bus service will return to normal operations on Tuesday, May 30.

As a reminder, all campus routes - as well as the Red Mile (Lextran 15) service frequently used by the campus community - are viewable real-time on TransLoc Rider, UK’s GPS-based bus locating system. TransLoc Rider can be accessed at and via the free TransLoc Rider Android and iPhone apps.

Traffic Impact on University Drive Slated to Begin May 30

Starting Tuesday, May 30, roadwork will impact traffic on University Drive between Hilltop Avenue and Huguelet Drive to facilitate construction of a pedestrian crosswalk between Lewis Hall and the Johnson and Donovan Halls. However, through traffic will be maintained at all times.

From Tuesday, May 30 through Monday, July 3, the University Drive southbound lanes between Hilltop Avenue and Huguelet Drive will be closed. Traffic will be shifted to the west of the center island where the northbound lanes will temporarily change to accommodate two-way traffic.

From Tuesday, July 4 through Friday, August 4, the northbound lanes will be closed and traffic will shift to the southbound lanes, which will then accommodate two-way traffic.

The infrastructure work will not cause any planned deviations to campus or Lextran buses traveling on University Drive. However, riders should allow extra time in the event of traffic delays.

Members of the university community should allow extra time when traveling this section of campus.

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.
