Police prepare for Monday night, after more than 30 arrests were made for weekend disturbances.

Police are once again urging safe celebrations, and also urge you to not drive in downtown Lexington Monday night, if you can help it.


•    Police urge motorists to use extra patience on the road.

•    No parking zones have been designated in the 300 block of Limestone, areas of Woodland and Euclid and areas of State Street.

•    Motorists should avoid the UK campus area and the downtown area immediately following the games (especially South Limestone Street, Euclid Avenue and State Street.)

•    Several no parking and towing areas will be designated by signs. These areas include sections of South Limestone Street, and Woodland and Euclid avenues.

Overall Enforcement

•    Extra police officers from UK, the city and the Fayette County Sheriff’s office will be on duty in and around the downtown area and neighborhoods, surrounding campus on foot, in cars and on bicycles.

•    Citizens are asked to keep streets clear, and allow emergency response vehicles passage at all times.

•    Celebration is acceptable, but tipping cars, setting fires, destroying property and throwing projectiles will not be tolerated and will result in arrest.

Medical Emergencies

   Fire and Emergency Services will be operating an emergency triage center at Fire Station 5 on Woodland Avenue tonight. Persons with medical emergencies can report to that area during the NCAA games and several hours following, for emergency medical treatment.

Lexington police are working with UK police to ID the suspects from Saturday night and make arrests. To see the photos of suspects they are searching for, go to www.IDthisperson.com and click on "Kentucky".
