Derby City Council will be carrying out road improvements at Nottingham Road, between Pentagon and Wiltshire Road.
The work will begin on Monday 23rd September and last for ten weeks, until Friday 29th November.
It will include repairs to drains, renewal of manhole covers and the replacement of over 10,000 square metres of road surface and road markings.
The road has seen significant deterioration, so binder course and geogrid will be installed to provide additional rigidity to the heavily-used route.
This will take place once the existing surface has been planed off.
A Derby City Council spokesperson said: “We appreciate this type of work is disruptive and journeys will be delayed.
“Our main aim is to get the work completed as quickly and safely as possible.
“As a key route into the city, it is important however that we keep this road working and traffic moving.”
They added: “Working off-peak will lessen the impact of the scheme during the busy parts of the day and so the road will only be closed at off-peak times, between 9.30am and 3.30pm, and then 7pm until midnight, Monday to Friday.
“Closing the road for the duration of the work is not an option, due to the large volumes of traffic that rely on this route each day.”
Work will be carried out in a phased approach to reduce disruption (click here for more info).
A signed diversion route will be in place, and the council says it will do its best to make sure all properties directly affected by the work can be accessed with minimum disruption.
There will be traffic marshals to direct traffic and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
