A consultation has been launched on the future of King’s Dyke level crossing.
Cambridgeshire County Council are asking A605 users for their views on three possible alternative routes, including bridges over the railway line and a short bypass.
The consultation, which starts on Thursday and runs until December 15, follows a feasibility study into different options.
There are about 10,500 trips over the crossing each day, with traffic delayed by up to seven minutes at times.
Project officers will be available to answer questions about the scheme at public exhibitions.

Cambridgeshire County Councillor Martin Curtis said: “The possible replacement of the level crossing has been long awaited around Whittlesey and beyond.
“I urge everyone to return the questionnaire in the Discovering Whittlesey magazine or go online to fill it in and have their say on the bridge alternatives.”
Project Manager Alistair Frost said: “We’re keen to find out people’s opinions on alternatives to the level crossing so that we can provide a solution which works for local residents and businesses.”
