Portions of Washington Avenue, Rose Street to Close in Coming Weeks

Published: Jun 10, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 10, 2014) — Construction is set to begin soon on a new, $100 million Academic Science Building that will transform the way University of Kentucky students, faculty and staff learn, teach and conduct research. The building is the result of the hard work of many people, including UK's Athletics Department, which in an unprecedented partnership, is funding nearly two-thirds of this construction.

 

To move forward on this critical facility, demolition of Donovan Hall will begin soon. That will result in the need for the closure of portions of two streets on campus.

 

Utility upgrades and construction of the new Academic Science Building will require portions of Washington Avenue and Rose Street to close for an extended period of time. Construction impact will begin in mid-June and extend through the 2014-2015 academic year with impacts concluding by Fall 2015.

 

On Monday, June 16, Washington Avenue from South Limestone to Gladstone Avenue will close. This phase is scheduled to last until Friday, July 4. During this time, the Graham and Gladstone parking areas off Washington Avenue will only be accessible via Rose Street.

 

On Monday, July 7, the portion of Washington Avenue from South Limestone to Gladstone Avenue will reopen, and the section of Washington Avenue from Rose Street to Gladstone Avenue will close. Impacts associated with this construction will be in effect until September 2015. Access to Graham and Gladstone Avenues during this period will only be available via South Limestone.

 

Additionally on Monday, July 7, Rose Street between Huguelet Drive and Funkhouser Drive will close, and the section of Rose Street from Columbia Avenue to Funkhouser Drive will be restricted to local traffic only. The impacts associated with this construction are expected to be in effect until September 2015.
