University Boulevard Lane Closure the Week of August 26

GAINESVILLE – The right lane of southbound University Boulevard is scheduled to be closed between Route 29 and I-66 around the clock beginning 9 a.m. Monday, August 26, through noon on Friday, August 30. The closure is needed so that construction crews can install curbs and gutters and pave the entrance to the new University Boulevard (Gainesville) Park and Ride Lot. 

The first portion of the lot will open this October with more than 960 parking spaces available for carpooling, vanpools, and commuter bus service during construction of the Transform 66 Project. When fully completed in late 2022, the facility will provide over 2,000 park and ride spaces with access to and from the I-66 Express Lanes from University Boulevard.   

All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.

Learn more about the I-66 Outside the Beltway Project and sign up for project updates and lane closure alerts at Transform66.org.
