LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 4, 2020) — Crews are expected to begin milling and repaving portions of College Way and Sports Center Drive on the University of Kentucky campus as early as next week. Traffic will be maintained, but motorists and bicyclists should exercise caution and anticipate possible delays in these areas.

Flaggers will be on site to direct traffic. The campus bus system's Green Route, which travels both Sports Center Drive and College Way, will continue to operate as normal.

Access will also be maintained to the COVID-19 testing site on College Way and to the College Way West lot for the duration. 

Sports Center Drive will be repaved from Cooper to Complex Drive. Work on College Way will span from Wildcat Court to the College Way East and West parking lots. 

Once underway, the work is expected to take approximately one week, weather permitting.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
