There will be overnight closures on the A11 next week as work continues to dual the road.
The road will close between the Fiveways roundabout and the B1106 Elveden crossroads on Thursday and Friday from 10pm to 6am the following morning on both days.
The closure is to allow the Highways Agency to continue work on the recently installed Gibsons accommodation bridge.
Highways Agency project manager, Geoff Chatfield, said: “We have to close a short section of the A11, when traffic flows are at their lowest, to allow road workers to safely continue work at Gibson’s accommodation bridge.
“We have worked closely with local partners to ensure disruption to road users during the closure is kept to a minimum.”
There will be a clearly signed diversion via the A1065 and B1107 during the closures, with advance warning signs placed along local roads, according to the Highways Agency.
A spokesman advised road users to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys prior to setting out.
