Portion Of Woodland Avenue On UK Campus To Close Through 3/22


Starting at 7 p.m. today, Friday, March 13, through the afternoon of Sunday, March 22, a portion of Woodland Avenue will be closed due to the installation of a sanitary sewer line for The 90, an 80,000-square-foot facility that will open in Fall 2015 and house new dining facilities as well as multiple student support and academic enhancement areas.

During this time, Woodland Avenue from Hilltop Avenue to Columbia Avenue will be closed. Signage will be in place clearly indicating the detours.

Hilltop Avenue from the W.T. Young Library Visitor Lot to the Rose Street Garage will remain open to local traffic only; both parking areas will remain accessible at all times.

The section of Woodland Avenue from Columbia Avenue to Euclid Avenue will remain open.

For more information on the project, visit http://construction.uky.edu/projects.aspx?ProjID=13.  

The CATS Break Route, which is scheduled to run Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 20, will be impacted by the road closures. Parking and Transportation Services will announce details of the revised route on www.uky.edu/pts.

Anyone who normally travels in the vicinity should allow extra travel time. Drivers and pedestrians are encouraged to use caution as they navigate the area. Signage will indicate detours and sidewalk closures.

The project is expected to conclude by Sunday, March 22, but the work is weather-dependent and timetables are subject to change.
