Together these projects will improve journeys for drivers by making the road safer and the surface smoother.

There will be some short term disruption as we need to close sections of the carriageway on a number of nights.

Here’s a summary of the closures and diversion routes to help you plan your journeys.

A64 between Askham Bar and Fulford (junction with the A19)

We’ve got essential maintenance work to carry out on the bridge which runs over the River Ouse at Bishopthorpe.

There will be overnight closures of both east and westbound carriageways in place, generally between 8pm and 6am:

  • between 4 - 8 January
  • in late February for approximately 3 nights
  • for a number of weeks in March, April and May

Drivers are advised to follow the A1237, northern outer ring road. Local traffic can follow the signed diversion through York via the A1036 Tadcaster Road and the A19 Fulford Road

A64 between the B1248 Scarborough to the junction with the A169 for Pickering

Road resurfacing of the westbound carriageway will take place on 4 January for approximately one week. Musley bank to the junction of the A169 for Pickering.

Improvement works will take place to refresh white lines and replace reflective road studs on 4 January for approximately one week. The eastbound A64 will be closed and a signed diversion will be provided through Malton.
