Councillor Richard Davies, executive member at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "With two-way traffic now returning, congestion on Newark Road should be a lot better.
"I know it's been gridlock there over the last few months – I really do feel for anyone who's been affected and I'd like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience that we've caused.
"We always knew this would be a disruptive job because Newark Road was congested to start with - that's why we needed to make these changes.
"But once all the work has been completed we expect journey times for motorists to be slashed by up to two minutes, and pedestrians and cyclists will benefit from improved facilities too."
Work on the £2 million scheme started on July 8 and is due to be completed by November 22.
A number of changes will be introduced to the roads and footpaths in the Newark Road area.
The junctions with Rookery Lane and Brant Road are both being widened and improved, and a dedicated ‘turn left’ lane is being created on Newark Road to enable motorists to turn into Brant Road.
As well as general maintenance to Newark Road and Bracebridge, a new shared cycle and footpath has been built along Newark Road and Brant Road too.
