Portion of Northbound University Drive to Close Temporarily
LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 20, 2014) — A portion of University Drive on the University of Kentucky campus will be closed this weekend to facilitate road resurfacing. No parking will be permitted on the northbound side of University Drive beginning at 8 p.m. today, Friday, June 20.
The resurfacing is scheduled to begin either Saturday, June 21 or Sunday, June 22. Once work commences, the northbound University Drive travel lane will close beginning near the intersection with Hospital Drive and ending just before the intersection with Huguelet Drive. The northbound parking area as well as the adjacent bike lane will provide northbound access to Complex Drive.
Access will remain to the UK and VA hospitals via Hospital Drive. Northbound through traffic on University Drive will be detoured to Veterans Drive at Hospital Drive with access back to University Drive at Huguelet Drive.
The work is expected to be completed by 5 a.m. Monday, June 23. However, as always, construction is weather-dependent and the timetable may change.
