Woodland Avenue, Hilltop Avenue Work Slated for August 13-14, 17-18

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 13, 2015) — In the coming week, roadwork will impact portions of Woodland Avenue and Hilltop Avenue. However, through traffic will be maintained at all times, and flagmen will assist with directing traffic during the impact.

The project will include milling, paving, and striping on Woodland Avenue from Rose Lane to The 90 and on Hilltop Avenue from The 90 to University Drive on Thursday, Aug. 13 and Friday, Aug. 14. Speed tables will be installed Monday, Aug. 17 and Tuesday, Aug. 18. Speed tables are midblock traffic-calming devices used to reduce traffic speed, in this case associated with the mid-block pedestrian crossing from the Woodland Glen residence halls to the W.T. Young Library pedestrian walks.

Anyone who normally travels in the vicinity should allow extra travel time.
