The B6413 will be closed between Lazonby and Kirkowald at Eden Bridge fro two weeks, starting form today (3rd June).
The road closure will allow for the installation of permanent traffic lights.
A signed diversion route will be in place via the A6 and Armathwaite bridge for the duration of the works.
A walkway for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be maintained across Eden Bridge as well as access to the recycling area and Swimming Pool from Lazonby.
Cumbria County Council has apologised for any inconvenience that may be caused due to the road closure and says that due to the limited width of the bridge it is not possible to safely install the traffic signals while keeping the road open to vehicles.
