Overnight closures will take place on the M6 in Staffordshire over the next nine weeks while bridges are upgraded.
The Highways Agency is to carry out the work between junction 12 for Gailey and junction 13 Stafford South from Thursday (26).
The project involves repairing concrete slabs, installing new joints and resurfacing the road on the Penk Viaduct, Woodbank Canal Bridge and Acton Trussell Road Bridge.
There will be full overnight closures between the two junctions from 9pm to 5am.
The northbound side will be closed overnight on Sunday (29), October 16 and 31, and November 15.
Meanwhile the southbound side will be closed overnight on October 4, 19, November 3 and 14.
There will then be phased overnight lane closures on both carriageways, leaving one lane running in each direction between 9pm and 5am.
During the day there will be three narrow lanes on each carriageway at all times.
During the full overnight closures traffic will be diverted from junction 12 via the A5 and A449 to rejoin the M6 at junction 13, or vice versa.
Highways Agency project manager Colin Jackson said: “Drivers should allow extra time for their journey, particularly when the motorway is closed or reduced to one lane.”
Elsewhere, repairs are being carried out to the carriageway at junction 11 for Cheslyn Hay on the M6.
The northbound carriageway and southbound entry slip road will be closed overnight until October 21 between 8pm and 6am.
Works are also being carried out between junctions 10 and seven, which will see the southbound carriageway closed overnight until October 1.
