Utility Installation – Sidewalk Closure
Engineering Plaza
December 19, 2016 – January 7, 2017

During the holiday break, the University of Kentucky, Physical Plant Department will be replacing a main electrical service duct bank from the Carol M. Gatton Business & Economics Building to the ASTECC Building. The Electrical Duct Bank serves over 30% of the buildings on the north side of campus. This project will improve reliability of the electrical service to these buildings and increase the capacity of the electrical service for future campus renovations and development. The work will not require an electrical outage to any of the buildings. The construction site will be blocking the access and pathways to several buildings in the core of the campus. Please make plans for alternate routes as you walk to the affected entrances. For details see the map. Questions may be directed to Boyd Gambrel, boyd.gambrel@uky.edu.

Lane Closure
Hilltop Avenue and University Drive
November 6, 2016

The electrical outage on 10/19/16 was due to a cable failure on circuit 1-7. The impacted facilities were switched to a redundant circuit to restore power. We are expediting the cable replacement to regain the N+1 redundancy for these facilities. The repair involves installing new cable through a manhole located at the intersection of Hilltop Avenue and University Drive. This map shows the area of the intersection that will be impacted by the work. The primary impact will be to the SE bound traffic on Hilltop Avenue.
