New traffic management arrangements are being put in place as part of ongoing works at a busy Middlesbrough junction.
Temporary road closures and restrictions will be necessary from next week as work continues on improvements to Dixons Bank and Stainton Way.
Due to the volume of traffic at the intersection, signal and surfacing works will be undertaken outside peak hours, under temporary road closures on Stainton Way.
These will take place from 6pm to 10.30pm from Monday, August 19 until Wednesday, August 28 (excluding weekends).
Carriageway closures will be in place during these works, and for a few hours afterwards to allow the newly laid surface to cool.
Works will commence on the completion of Dixons Bank from Monday, August 26 to Monday, September 23, requiring an off-peak single carriageway lane operation between 9.30am and 4.30pm.
During this period, it will only be possible to travel northbound (towards the town centre) on Dixons Bank, maintaining emergency access to James Cook University Hospital, and maintaining rush hour traffic flows.
Completion of Stainton Way will take place from Tuesday, September 10 to Thursday, September 12, with a one-way system in operation.
Works will be undertaken during the day, with traffic only able to flow from Dixons Bank towards The Fairway roundabout during this period.
Signed diversion routes will be in operation throughout, and access to properties will be maintained at all times.
Dates are subject to change due to adverse weather, or other unpredictable issues or events.
A Middlesbrough Council spokesman said: "These works have been scheduled to minimise disruption, and will be completed in the shortest possible timeframe.
"Some delays are unfortunately inevitable due to the volume of traffic using this stretch of carriageway, and drivers are advised to allow additional time for their journey or, if possible, avoid the junction completely for the duration of the works.
"We apologise for any inconvenience, and thank members of the public for their patience and understanding during these important improvements."
