BURLINGTON, Ky. -- Drivers in Boone County will have to adjust their commute as crews change directions on a local interchange.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office said drivers should watch for flaggers and work trucks entering and leaving the highway on Camp Ernst Road from Rogers Lane to Golf Club Drive.

Starting Saturday, there will be a traffic switch on Camp Ernst Road from Patrick Drive to Golf Club Drive.

During this time, northbound and southbound traffic on Camp Ernst Road (KY 237) will be driving on the new bridge over KY 18.

Southbound and northbound KY 237 traffic that wants to head east on KY 18 will have to turn at Patrick Drive, and then turn left on McGrath Lane to access KY 18.

Drivers on KY 237 who want to head west on KY 18 will have to head over the bridge and turn left at the new signalized intersection.

Eastbound KY 18 drivers will use the ramp on the right to access KY 237 or go under the bridge to continue on KY 18.

Westbound KY 18 drivers that want to go southbound on Camp Ernst Road will need to turn left at McGrath Lane and right onto Patrick Drive in order to get on to Camp Ernst Road.

Finally, westbound KY 18 drivers that wish to turn right onto KY 237 will be required to turn right onto McGrath Lane and left onto Florence Pike.
