Brand new plans to improve the A164 and replace the Jock's Lodge Junction near Beverley have been unveiled by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
The preferred scheme will go on show to the public at two exhibitions later this month, giving residents a chance to have their say on the proposals.
The new design includes:
Depending on funding for the scheme, work could begin in late 2022 and is expected to take two years to complete.
Members of the public are being invited to see the plans for themselves and have their say on the scheme at two exhibitions which will be held on:
At both events, staff from the council's civil engineering services team will be there to answer any questions and give a better understanding of the scheme.
People attending will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire about the project.
The proposals can also be viewed and a questionnaire completed at the council's website at: www.eastriding.gov.uk/jockslodge
Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for strategic management at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "The A164 and the A1079 are two of the busiest roads in the East Riding and where they meet, at the Jock's Lodge Junction, this has always created a pinch point for traffic.
"Despite work being carried out over the years to improve the safety of the junction, this has never really eased the congestion, and the only solution for us now is a major road improvement scheme.
"This project has been a huge challenge for our civil engineers but we believe we have come up with the best possible solution to reduce congestion and keep traffic disruption to a minimum during the construction.
"So we hope residents, motorists and business people will go along to the exhibitions or view the plans on our website and then give us their feedback."
The results of the public feedback will form part of a planning application which is due to be submitted to the council in April this year.
If planning permission is granted, the council will submit a Full Business Case to the Department for Transport, and if this is approved the scheme could receive construction funding in 2022.
The A164 and Jock's Lodge Junction Improvement Scheme received feasibility funding from the Department for Transport's Large Local Major Schemes fund following the submission of an Outline Business Case in December 2017.
Initial plans for the A164 and Jock's Lodge Junction Improvement Scheme were revealed in November 2017 with a number of alternative schemes put forward.
Feedback from the public identified a preferred scheme to create a dual carriageway along the A164 and a two-bridge roundabout to replace the junction.
However, during extensive design and development it was found the plan would have too large an impact on the existing infrastructure and would cause considerable disruption on the existing roads during construction.
So work then began on a new revised plan, which is the proposal now being put forward.
The A164, A1079 and the Jock's Lodge Junction
The A164 is a major route serving the south of the East Riding, between Beverley and the Humber Bridge.
It is the most heavily trafficked road in the East Riding, carrying more than 30,000 vehicles per day along certain sections.
The A1079 is the primary route between the cities of Hull and York, as well as connecting Beverley, Pocklington and Market Weighton.
On the approach to Jocks Lodge, the A1079 currently carries around 20,000 vehicles a day.
