People who live along the A66 have the opportunity to take part in a consultation about a £1 billion scheme to dual the road from Penrith to Scotch Corner.
Highways England, which is behind the 50-mile dual carriageway project, has released an update to its project, before the planning process begins in the spring.
Senior project manager Matt Townsend, of Highways England, said: “We are committed to building on the positive relationships we have with communities that live along the route.”
The scheme -— set to be largest ever investment in a single-road project — was unveiled in May.
Specialist teams have already conducted ecological, environmental and heritage assessments across the route.
More ground and soil surveys are set to take place during winter and Highways England want to talk to people about what it is doing.
It has created an online update to help people understand everything from travel access to junction designs.
A previous consultation saw more than 850 people comment on the scheme and tell Highways England that the existing A66’s widespread congestion made the road slow and unsafe.
Highways England added that the project is aimed at: “supporting Northern Powerhouse aspirations for better, less-congested connections and economic prosperity and sustainability
