Gillis Parking Lot to Close March 17; PTS Providing Other Disabled Accessible Options

Published: Feb 24, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 24, 2014) — The parking lot adjacent to the Gillis Building on Administration Drive on the University of Kentucky’s campus will permanently close March 17, 2014 to facilitate the Gatton Business and Economics Building renovation and expansion project. Following completion of the project, this area will be converted to green space in keeping with UK’s physical development plan. The impacted parking lot has 17 disabled accessible parking spaces. 

 

In preparation for this lot closure, UK Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is increasing the number of disabled accessible spaces available in the South Limestone Garage (PS#5) and the Rose Street Garage (PS#2). Additionally, PTS will be adding disabled accessible parking spaces in the Prall Street Lot, located on the corner of South Limestone and Prall Street, across from Memorial Hall. This lot was recently acquired as part of the Lexington Theological Seminary property purchase and, in addition to providing hourly visitor parking, will be restriped in the coming weeks to accommodate disabled accessible parking to those with UK disabled permits.

 

Another option which may work well for those individuals with severe mobility limitations is to park in a remote lot or structure with available disabled accessible parking spaces and proximate access to the CATS bus system. All CATS buses are ADA compliant with wheelchair lifts. The daytime Red and Blue campus CATS bus routes and the Night Route all provide access to Administration Drive via a bus stop at the Gillis Building. In particular, the Press Avenue Garage is a recommended option, based on the number of disabled accessible parking spaces located immediately adjacent to the facility’s elevators. On the first floor of the garage is a covered bus stop, served by the Kentucky Clinic Shuttle and the CATS Red Route. The Red Route operates from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and provides access to the Gillis Building. All campus bus routes and schedules can be viewed at www.uky.edu/pts/buses-and-shuttles_campus-shuttles.

 

"The university remains committed to promoting an accessible campus for all members of the campus community," said PTS Director Lance Broeking. "Parking and Transportation Services is encouraging anyone impacted by this lot closure to review the alternate parking options (listed above) ― as well as all other campus disabled accessible parking areas ― prior to the lot closure. However, we recognize that the alternatives listed will not meet the needs of everyone impacted by the lot closure. Individuals with questions or concerns are urged to contact PTS."

 

Contact PTS at 859-257-5757 or ukparking@lsv.uky.edu; the department’s staff will identify additional disabled accessible parking alternatives for those individuals with unique circumstances.
