Motorway bridges linking M62 to M6 near Warrington set for upgrade and three-months of traffic diversions
Two slip roads at the junction known as Croft interchange will be closed overnight for around three months while work takes place to replace safety barriers and install new lights.
The scheme to upgrade the 2 slip roads is due to be completed by the end of December.
The closures, by contractors for Highways England, will affect the westbound exit slip road from junction 10 of the M62 onto the northbound M6 at junction 21a plus the eastbound exit slip road from the M62 onto the southbound M6.
The slip roads will be closed between 8pm and 6am and diversions will direct motorists to the next junction to turn around.
A 50mph speed limit and narrow lanes will also be in place on the slip roads at other times of day.
Mark Mosley, Project Manager at Highways England, said: “This is essential work which will ensure the bridges remain in good shape.
“We’re only closing the slip roads overnight when the traffic levels are at their lowest and drivers will notice upgraded safety barriers as well as new lights on the slip roads when the project is completed.”
