The new Foynes to Limerick preferred route has been announced by Limerick City and County Council under the Road Improvement Scheme.
The Option 3 (Orange) route was decided on after the assessment of four possible routes earlier this year.
The preferred route corridor runs from the N69 in Foynes towards the N21 in Rathkeale, bypassing Adare.
The road will then connect to the existing M20 motorway into Limerick city.
The long-awaited Adare bypass has been a topic of discussion since it was first proposed over 20 years ago, due to the high volumes of traffic in the village.
The council held a public display session of the route corridor yesterday in Raheen, with the display continuing at the Flying Boat Museum in Foynes today from 2pm to 8pm.
The public display sessions allow the public to view the preferred route corridor and to raise concerns, questions or comments, according to Council Director of Transportation and Travel Kieran Lehane.
Information about the preferred route corridor is also available in Lissanalta House, Dooradoyle, and on the project’s website.
The closing date for comments on the preferred route corridor is Friday 15 January, 2016.
