Work to resurface the A66 near Keswick will get underway next week.
The £668,000 project will see the road resurfaced, refreshed road markings, new reflective road studs and some new fencing and cattle crossing signals.
Work will begin next Monday (13 June) on a section of the route between Threlkeld and Scales.
Further work between Scales and Mungrisedale will then take place between 27 June and 20 July.
Most of the work will be done between 8pm and 6am each night using temporary traffic lights, a 40mph speed limit and occasional convoy arrangements with drivers being led past the road works at 10mph by a contractor’s vehicle.
Some side roads will also be closed overnight but these will be signed locally, and some daytime working will take place between Scales and Mungrisedale.
