More Students, Traffic Arriving on Campus This Week

Published: Aug 19, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 19, 2014) — As Move-In 2014 continues at the University of Kentucky, a campus-wide email was sent Tuesday, Aug. 18, as a reminder that students continue to move to campus over the next few days.  Below is the email sent to the campus community:

 

University of Kentucky Move-In is an exciting time for our campus community and an important time to begin fostering student success -- our top priority at all levels in everything that we do.

 

This year, are welcoming students and their families during four major Move-In days over the next week:

·         Saturday, August 16

·         Wednesday, August 20

·         Friday, August 22

·         Saturday, August 23

 

Move-In — combined with current construction occurring on campus — will impact parking, transit, and transportation routes throughout the campus at various times. Among the more than 6,000 students moving to campus housing, about 1,100 students moved in Saturday, August 16; 1,700 are expected Wednesday, August 20; around 2,200 will move in Friday, August 22; and another 1,100 are expected Saturday, August 23.

 

Safety is always a priority at UK and especially now when thousands of new students are transitioning to campus at a time when vehicle and pedestrian traffic are heavy and streets are re-routed. UK Police will be out in full force to assist with Move-In, and everyone is urged to be patient and travel safely.

 

We thank you in advance for your patience and help during this process. Below is information regarding student move-in traffic flow and parking and bus schedule impacts this week, including important information about one-way streets, no parking areas, alternate bus routes and high traffic locations.

 

ONE-WAY STREETS:  (see map)

 

One-way southbound:  MLK Blvd. between Good Samaritan parking lot and Avenue of Champions

One-way southbound:  Lexington Ave. between Maxwell St. and Avenue of Champions

One-way westbound:  Avenue of Champions between Rose Street and S. Limestone

One-way westbound:  Huguelet Dr. between University Dr. and Rose St.

One-way northbound:  Rose Street between Huguelet Drive and Washington Ave.

One-way eastbound:  Hilltop Ave. between University Dr. and Woodland Ave.

One-way northbound:  Woodland Ave. between Hilltop Ave. and Columbia Ave.

 

NOTE: regarding access to the Rose Street Garage (PS#2) and Craft Center Lot

 

UK employees who usually access the Rose Street Garage from Woodland Avenue and Hilltop Avenue, which will both be one-way, will be able to access the Rose Street Garage (PS#2) from University Drive, but not from Woodland.  They will exit the garage onto Woodland, not University Drive.

Also, entrance and exit to the Craft Center Lot is only available via Rose Street; vehicles may not access the lot from Lexington Avenue.

Employees are advised to incorporate possible delays into their drive times.

 

NO PARKING AREAS:

 

Due to the need to quickly unload vehicles near residence halls, several areas of campus will be NO PARKING zones from 12:01 a.m. to 6 p.m. on each of the Move-In days. Additionally, several streets on and bordering campus will have closures or other changes to traffic flow to accommodate Move-In. Watch for NO PARKING signs and bagged meters in these areas.

Vehicles parked in the NO PARKING areas listed below will be TOWED.  Owners will be responsible for all tow-related charges.
