Traffic Exiting UK HealthCare Parking Garage to be Temporarily Rerouted

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 4, 2016) — Beginning Friday, Aug. 5, Conn Terrace between South Limestone and the UK HealthCare garage exit will be temporarily closed. The closure is necessary to allow for construction of a pedestrian bridge linking the new Shriner’s Hospital Medical Center to the UK HealthCare parking garage and is expected to last approximately two weeks. During this time, traffic exiting the garage will be detoured to Virginia Avenue (for northbound travelers) or Waller Avenue (for southbound). Visitors who need to pick up patients at the hospital will need to use the detour to Waller Avenue, turn left onto Waller and left again onto South Limestone. The entrance to the hospital will then be on the right.  Patient and visitor shuttles will also be detoured during this time and will require extra travel time. Patients should allow extra time for getting to and from appointments whenever possible.  Detour routes will be marked on the street and signs will be posted by all garage elevators. Printed maps of recommended exit routes will be available in racks near the garage elevators and at all information desks.  Patients who have appointments in the Kentucky Clinic building may wish to use the Kentucky Clinic Parking Garage, which is located on Huguelet Avenue.
