Farm Road to Temporarily Close to Thru Traffic Jan. 25-28

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 24, 2022) — Farm Road will close to thru traffic beginning 7a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 25, through Friday, Jan. 28, for work associated with an electrical upgrade project.

Employee and visitor parking areas adjacent to the Kentucky Tobacco Research and Development Center, the Orange Lot, the E.S. Goodbarn Visitor Lot and the large and small Gluck Equine Center lots will remain accessible from University Drive. The pedestrian crossing from the large Gluck Lot across Cooper Drive will also remain accessible.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
