LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 20, 2008) On August 22, 23 and 24, University of Kentucky students will be moving back to campus. During this time, UK Police will be restricting traffic around the central and south campus residence halls. Motorists will not be allowed to make left turns onto University Drive from Hospital Drive or Complex Drive Extended. Complex Drive will be closed to through traffic starting the evening of Thursday, August 21.
Most importantly for the Friday commute will be a change of direction and traffic restriction for Huguelet Drive between University Drive and Rose Street. Huguelet Drive will change to a one-way street going toward Rose Street, and vehicle traffic will be restricted to move-in students and official vehicles only.
Police officers and others will be posted near most residence halls directing traffic and assisting students.
Please plan accordingly and allow extra time for your commute.
