PTS Expanding High Street Employee Lot This Summer

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 6, 2016) — University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) will be increasing the number of spaces in the employee parking lot located at the corner of E. High Street and S. Martin Luther King Boulevard. The expansion project is scheduled for summer 2016.

Currently, the High Street Lot has 81 parking spaces. PTS anticipates the addition of 77 new spaces — nearly doubling the parking capacity.

The expansion of the High Street Lot will provide proximate parking for North Campus employees, including those who work at UK HealthCare Good Samaritan Hospital and the Kentucky Utilities building.

Parking in the High Street Lot may be impacted during the expansion. However, construction will occur during the summer, when parking demand is decreased and permit holders experience more flexibility in student parking areas. Details regarding construction impacts will be communicated accordingly.

The project is slated to be complete before the start of the 2016 fall semester.
