The A354 between Dorchester and Weymouth will be closed for 10 nights next month to allow Dorset County Council to carry out essential resurfacing works on the Ridgeway.
Between Monday 12 September and Friday 23 September 2011, the A354 Dorchester Road/Weymouth Relief Road will be closed between the Stadium Roundabout and the Jurassic Roundabout between 7pm and 6am on week nights. The road will be open over the weekend of 17-18 September.
While the road is temporarily closed, the diversion route for southbound traffic will be signed from the Stadium Roundabout onto the A35 eastbound, taking the A352 to the Warmwell Cross Roundabout and the A353 via Preston to the Bincombe Bumps Roundabout, then taking the second exit towards the Jurassic Roundabout at the bottom of the relief road. The reverse route applies in the northbound direction.
Local residents will be able to cross the A354 at Monkton Park for access to homes via the local side roads. Emergency vehicles will be able to travel through the work site.
