The newly upgraded M7 in Kildare is to fully reopen this week.
Three lanes on both sides of the motorway will be in operation from Friday morning.
18 months after works began, the widening of the M7 motorway is almost complete.
By Friday morning, all three lanes - both eastbound and westbound - will be open to all traffic.
The upgrade covers 13.6km of road between Junction 8 Johnstown and Junction 11 where the M7 and M9 merge.
It's part of a three element project which also includes the M7 Osberstown Interchange and the R407 Sallins Bypass.
Limited works will be continuing in the hard shoulder and roadside verge areas.
The extra lanes come at an ideal time ahead of the August Bank Holiday weekend, inter-county GAA matches across the country and the All Together Now music festival in Waterford.
