Beginning Monday, May 16, UofL will start an intensive renovation project on The Oval in front of Grawemeyer Hall. This project will necessitate significant changes to traffic patterns and to parking in this area.
Beginning May 17, The Oval will become a two-way street, and signs will be posted to direct traffic to the Natural Sciences and Law lots. Traffic patterns will change several times before the project's expected completion on Aug. 15.
Major road closures include:
- Third and Fourth streets
- Central Avenue between Fourth and Floyd streets
- Southern Parkway
- Floyd Street between Central and Eastern Parkway
