Part of the A596, Curzon Street in Maryport, is closed in both directions due to an unsafe building.
The section of road has been closed since about 3pm on Wednesday 1 August, after masonry was seen falling from a building near the Co-op store.
Allerdale council notified Connect Roads, which manages the A596 for the county council, and it took the decision to close the road.
The road closure is from the Station Street junction to the entrance of the Co-Op store. Pedestrian access remains and all businesses are open.
Vehicles can still access Station Street from Curzon Street, Mill Street Car Park and Senhouse Street.
Traffic is being diverted via Mealpot Road.
A survey carried out on the building showed part of the building to be structurally unsafe and a danger to the public.
Our contractors are on site carrying out the necessary work to make the building safe and ensure no more masonry will fall from it. They are working as quickly as possible to limit the disruption caused by the road closure. However, the safety of the public is our main priority."
