Main construction work is due to start this week.
Jonathon Pizzey, Highways Agency project manager said:
"These public exhibitions will be a chance for residents, businesses and road-users to find out more about the benefits the scheme will bring and what they can expect during construction. We welcome the opportunity to speak to them directly and answer any questions they may have."
