Lancashire County Council has confirmed that the new Penwortham bypass will be officially open next Monday.
The John Horrocks Way will open at 10:30 am on Monday, 2nd December.
The County Council are reminding people, “that changes to the road layout will take place when the new road opens next week.”
A spokesman said, “The aim of the new bypass is to remove traffic through the centre of Penwortham by providing a new route from the A59 Liverpool Road at Howick to the A582 at Broad Oak Roundabout.
“Following the opening on Monday, a section of Liverpool Road will close for three weeks for the final construction work at the junction with the new road. This can only be done once John Horrocks Way has opened.
“This work will affect anyone travelling on Liverpool Road between the new bypass and the junction with Howick Cross Lane. There’ll be no access during this time onto Howick Cross Lane and Howick Moor Lane from Liverpool Road itself, with local diversions in place.
“People travelling between Hutton and Preston will be able to use John Horrocks Way during this work.”
