Pavement Repair Work to Impact Access to Kentucky Clinic Garage on Saturday

The main area affected by this work is highlighted in blue, although a small section of Huguelet Drive (in orange) will be addressed at the same time.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 3, 2021) — UK HealthCare employees and visitors should expect delays while entering and exiting the Kentucky Clinic Garage (PS #3) on Saturday, Dec. 4. There may also be traffic delays on Huguelet Drive, just outside the entrance to the garage. 

Contractors will be working in these areas to repair the pavement. This work is expected to take one day, weather permitting. 

Flaggers will be on-site to assist, but limited traffic will be allowed into the garage. Instead, UK HealthCare administrators are asking patients, visitors and employees who would typically park in the Kentucky Clinic Garage on weekends to instead park in the UK HealthCare Garage (PS #8), starting after 4:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3. The UK HealthCare Garage is located at 110 Transcript Ave.

The main area affected by this work is highlighted in blue (see map), although a small section of Huguelet Drive (in orange) will be addressed at the same time on the University of Kentucky campus.

Visitor spaces in the exterior east section just outside the entrance to ­­­the garage (highlighted in green­­­­­) will be temporarily unavailable.

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.
