Construction began at Winslow in 2019.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 10, 2020) — Winslow Street will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic Tuesday, April 14, and Wednesday, April 15, as contractors dismantle a tower crane in that area near the University of Kentucky campus. 

This work is part of the South Limestone Garage (PS #5) expansion construction project, which will add approximately 900 additional parking spaces, plus retail and university innovation areas to the structure. The project is expected to be complete in August. 

Commuters should anticipate some traffic impacts in this area and allow additional travel time.

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.
