Expect Traffic Impacts on North Campus Starting on Monday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 24, 2020) — Winslow Avenue will be temporarily closed to traffic beginning Monday, Aug. 24, through Saturday, Aug. 29, weather permitting. 

This closure will allow Kentucky American Water Company to continue its work in that area, as well as enable contractors to deliver windows for installation in the Cornerstone Garage (PS #5). 

Commuters who wish to access Upper Street from South Limestone next week can do so by turning left onto Pine Street. 

Drivers and pedestrians should exercise caution in this area and anticipate some delays.

In early September, Kentucky American Water Company is expected to begin work on Avenue of Champions. It is anticipated that the eastbound lane of traffic will be maintained throughout construction. 

Contractors are also expected to begin repaving Bolivar, South Upper, Winslow and South Limestone as early as the first week of September.

Paving work on Avenue of Champions and Euclid Avenue will begin after Kentucky American Water Company completes its work in that area, potentially as early as October.

The campus Blue Route, which travels South Limestone and Avenue of Champions, is not expected to be impacted, aside from occasional delays due to traffic.
