A new junction to improve access from a north-east village to the A90 will open this weekend.
The grade-separated junction, part of the AWPR project, is expected to open to traffic on Monday following a weekend of work.
It is expected to lead to improved access between the A90, Balmedie and the B977 Balmedie to Belhelvie road.
Once opened, the existing junction to the north of Balmedie at Old Road will close.
The Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route is expected to be completed later this year.
A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “A number of side roads and bridges built as part of the project have already opened in advance of the new trunk road and, where practical, we will continue to seek other opportunities to bring forward the remaining sections and new side roads of the project at the earliest opportunity.
“We have been working very closely with the contractor to enable this new junction to open to traffic.
“However, many of the works planned for this weekend are weather dependent and they, and consequently the new junction opening to traffic, may be subject to change.
“When it opens, this new grade-separated junction will provide road users with a taste of what can be expected from the new trunk road as and when it opens to traffic.
“For instance, journeys will be safer because there is no longer a requirement to turn right across oncoming traffic.
“As with any change to road layout, we strongly encourage road users to drive with more caution than usual.
“We would also kindly request that drivers observe all of the signage in place to enhance the safety of road users and road workers as works are continuing on the A90.”
A series of road works are also planned, including the removal of temporary barriers, to take place at the south Balmedie junction.
From 8pm tonight until 6am Monday morning lane closures will be in place on the A90 at the northbound and southbound carriageways.
Temporary traffic lights will be put in place with a convoy in place over night.
Drivers will be escorted through the road works at a maximum speed of 10mph.
