Work costing £150,000 to resurface Berkhamsted’s London Road will begin on Wednesday.
It means the road will be closed between 8pm and 5am and is expected to take three nights to complete.
Access for householders and businesses with no alternative route to their premises will be maintained via a gateman who who will allow vehicles to enter when it is safe to do so.
Councillor Terry Douris, who oversees highways, said: “We are sorry for any disruption or inconvenience caused by these essential maintenance works but the work has to be carried out while the road is closed for the safety of our workers and all road users. We would ask you to allow extra time for any journeys you make while the work is in progress.”
Any changes to the proposed start date, duration or working hours due to unforeseen circumstances will be announced on information boards and at www.hertsdirect.org/roadworks
Bus services will also be affected, for details visit www.intalink.org.uk
