The list of proposed options to upgrade the N4 between Dromod and Carrick-on-Shannon will be available to the public by late spring or early summer.
The project aims to significantly ease traffic congestion on the busy national route linking the wider north west to Dublin.
It was confirmed last year that over 2,300 submissions had been made on the project, with 200 virtual meetings held between the design team and the public.
Following a query from Councillor Enda Stenson, the February meeting of Carrick-on-Shannon M.D heard that the Design Team are finalising the Draft Options Selection which it was claimed is a "very detailed process" with "all options and alternatives are examined in detail before a final Transportation Solution Option is arrived at. "
Following this process, it is expected that the Options Selection Report will then go on Public Display in Quarter 2 of 2022, with a Council spokesperson confirming it will be available to view "hopefully in April or May."
Leitrim County Council's roads division also confirmed that despite the wide study area it does not infer that the resultant transport solution must extend over the full area.
