Winslow Street Traffic Update

By lasu224 ยท January 31, 2020

University of Kentucky Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration Eric Monday sent the following message to the UK community Tuesday afternoon:

Two projects in the Winslow Street vicinity will impact commuters beginning 9 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29.

As previously shared, contractors working on the South Limestone Garage (PS #5) addition project will close one lane of Winslow Street to facilitate deployment of a crane necessary to install pre-cast panels on the north face of the garage expansion. This work is expected to take approximately two weeks.

Commuters should expect some delay in service and commuters should also anticipate traffic impacts in this area and allow additional travel time.

Following work on the garage expansion project, the City of Lexington will begin construction on a major sanitary sewer project affecting north campus. The start date for that project is tentatively scheduled for Monday, Feb.17.

During both projects, Winslow is expected to have one lane open. The campus White Route buses (Route 14) and the Red Mile Route (Route 15) will be rerouted during the Winslow lane closure. Buses will be diverted down to High Street. View map here.

More details about the sanitary sewer project and its impact on traffic and bus routes will be available next week, as details continue to be finalized.
