Commonwealth Stadium Parking and Shuttle Changes Slated for Next Week

Published: Aug 7, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 7, 2014) — In response to the parking impact associated with the ongoing Commonwealth Stadium renovation project and in anticipation of the upcoming Football Training Center project to be constructed on the southeast side of Commonwealth Stadium, University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is making a number of significant parking and transportation changes in the Commonwealth Stadium area effective Friday, Aug. 15, 2014. These changes will primarily impact parking locations and commuting routines for employees of UK HealthCare, Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) and the VA Hospital. The changes are designed to improve the efficiency of the UK HealthCare shuttle route, maximize the use of the newly constructed Commonwealth Stadium Orange Lot and provide employees of BCTC better parking options in relation to their workplace.

 

UK HealthCare employees who traditionally park in the E-Blue Lot will be relocated to the new Stadium Orange Lot being constructed adjacent to the E.S. Good Barn on the northwest corner of University and Alumni Drives. The Orange Lot is closer to the UK HealthCare campus than the E-Blue lot — the current park-and-ride lot — and will have 1,238 spaces. PTS plans to operate the same number of shuttles, despite the shorter shuttle route; this is expected to increase the frequency of the existing shuttle service while reducing wait times and the length of time employees spend riding the shuttle.

 

VA employees who traditionally park in the Stadium E-Red Lot at the corner of Cooper and University Drives will also be relocated to the Stadium Orange Lot. Both UK HealthCare and the VA Hospital will continue to operate independent shuttle services to their various facilities, but will now do so from the same parking area.

 

The Commonwealth Stadium Green Lot located between the stadium and BCTC will transition from a commuter (C6) only parking lot to a mixed-use employee (E) and commuter (C6) parking lot. Additionally, the E-Red employee parking lot located on the corner of Cooper and University Drives will transition to a K designated parking area. To improve traffic flow and access between the Green and Red Lots, a connector road has been added between the two lots.

 

Employee (E) permits are now authorized to park in any K Lot, including the Red, Blue, and Black Lots, as well as the Greg Page Overflow Lot and the Soccer/Softball Complex Lots, allowing employees more flexibility if their desired parking area is at capacity. This change became effective on July 1, 2014.
