Utility upgrades and construction of the new University of Kentucky Academic Science Building will require portions of Washington Avenue and Rose Street on UK's campus to close for an extended period of time. 

The first phase of this work is slated to begin next week.

On Monday, June 16, Washington Avenue from South Limestone to Gladstone Avenue will close.

This phase is scheduled to last until Friday, July 4.

During this time, the Graham and Gladstone parking areas off Washington Avenue will only be accessible via Rose Street.

A map of the affected areas can be accessed here: http://construction.uky.edu/renderings/Utility_Roadwork_ASB.jpg.

Vehicle traffic will be rerouted along Huguelet Drive to Rose Street, with access at the east end of Washington Avenue. See map here: http://construction.uky.edu/documents/WashingtonAvenueClosure_6-16-14.pdf.

In response to the upcoming street closure, UK Parking and Transportation Services has announced that the CATS Summer/Break Route will now travel down Huguelet Drive instead of Washington Avenue, resulting in the addition of a bus stop at Scovell Hall and the elimination of the Donovan Hall and Washington Avenue stops.

The sidewalk that runs from South Limestone to Rose Street on the Scovell Hall side of the street will remain open throughout the project.
