The junction at Dalmore is a simple grade separated junction, where the B817 is carried over the A9, with a single curving link road in the north east quadrant. Whilst this allows full access between the two routes, and is even provided with a small roundabout on the B817, right turning traffic on the A9 is not so lucky, having to wait for gaps in the traffic. At times this can be challenging, with the A9 being a very busy route, especially in summer, and this junction being the main connection for Alness. A simple solution of providing a slip road to the southbound carriageway in the south east quadrant, missing the farm and houses of Dalmore itself, could solve this. However, as far as it is known it is not currently being pursued.

The junction is a relatively new creation, dating from when the new A9 was built to bypass the towns of Alness and Invergordon. Prior to that, the A9 had followed the route of the B817 through the towns. The new line of the A9 to the east of Dalmore quickly picks up the old line of the B817, although the road has been completely rebuilt, with the old road still in use in places where it meanders away from the new road.
