Parking Lot, Shuttle Changes Set for Aug. 18

Published: Aug 15, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 15, 2014) — Over the next week, University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) will be changing the designations of several parking areas to best meet the needs of campus. These changes were previously announced, but as the implementation dates approach, PTS is issuing this reminder as well as clarifying the implementation dates.

 

Starting Monday, Aug. 18, the following changes will occur.

 

The Sports Center Garage (PS #7) and the large Sports Center Drive lot will change permit designations. The Sports Center Garage will continue to accommodate hourly pay visitor parking, but will otherwise transition to residential (R7) parking. The Sports Center Drive lot adjacent to Cliff Hagan Stadium will change from residential (R3) parking to employee (E) parking.

 

The parking lot immediately adjacent to the Oswald Building – the Green Lot – will transition from a commuter (C6) parking lot to a mixed-use employee (E) and commuter (C6) parking lot. The lot will no longer have separately designated E spots as it has in the past. The metered spaces will remain in the lot.

 

The new Orange Lot, located at the corner of University and Alumni Drives, will open and be available for employee (E) and commuter (C2) parking starting Monday, Aug. 18. The Orange Lot, adjacent to the E.S. Good Barn will have 1,238 spaces and will accommodate park-and-ride service for UK HealthCare and VA employees.

 

The UK HealthCare Shuttle will now stop in the Orange Lot, rather than the E-Blue Lot. 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. 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 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. VA employees previously restricted to the E-Red Lot will be moved to the new Orange Lot.

 

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 July 1, 2014.

 

Finally, with the return of the first group of students for the academic year, valid C6, R3, R4, R7, R10 and R14 permits will be required to park in designated lots.
