A £9.7m road surfacing programme will begin in Great Yarmouth, Bradwell and east coastal areas on April 13.
People living along routes to be surface dressed will receive notification a day or two before the crews arrive.
They will be asked not to park on the road on the day of the surfacing, or the following day when loose chippings will be swept up.
A 20mph speed limit will be imposed during work and on freshly-laid surface dressing for safety reasons.
The work is being done to extend the life of the road, while contributing to safety by improving skid resistance and preventing potholes, Norfolk County Council said.
Work takes place every year while the weather is warmer, with the holiday areas and main roads treated first.
The aim is to complete busier routes by the end of July.

The process involves laying a thin layer of bitumen and chippings on to the road, stopping water penetration and reducing the number of potholes caused by frost. This year's planned programme is worth £9.7m.
