(Burlington, Ky.) – A milestone has been reached on a major road project in Boone County.

 

There is a $22 million project to build an overpass carrying Kentucky 237 over Kentucky 18 in Burlington. The current intersection is being transformed into a single point urban interchange, which will utilize just one traffic signal.

 

This week, nearly all of the bridge beams have been set on the future overpass, the Kentucky Enquirer reports.

 

Crews have been closing various lanes of Kentucky 18 and 237 during overnight hours in recent weeks as they install the beams. The project is contracted to be complete by June of 2015.
