The right lane of southbound University Boulevard is scheduled to be closed between Route 29 and I-66 from 9:00 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26, to 12:00 noon on Friday, Aug. 30. The closure is needed so 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. More than 960 parking spaces will be 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.
