Delays are expected on a busy Carlisle road from this evening, as work continues to build a pedestrian crossing there.
A section of the A595 Castle Way, from Carlisle Castle to Shaddongate, will be resurfaced.
The work will take place overnight for the next eight days, and a contraflow traffic management system will be in place.
Cumbria County Council says there will be delays, and they are advising all LGV traffic to use the A689 bypass while the work is taking place, between 7pm and 6am.
The new pedestrian crossing has been controversial, but was approved by Carlisle City Council in 2015.
