A £250,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on Highfield Road, Craigavon, is due to commence next Tuesday, March 19.
The resurfacing works will extend a distance of approximately 500 metres from Roundabout 5 to the Balteagh Road, Craigavon.
The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the road.
Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a road closure between the hours of 7.30am and 6pm from Tuesday, March 19 to Friday, March 29.
During these times a diversion will be in place via Mandeville Road, Central Way and Northway.
Diversionary routes will be clearly signed and local access for residents and businesses will be maintained at all times during the works.
The road will be open to traffic in the evenings from 6pm until 7.30am each morning.
In order to help ensure the safety of road users and road workers, the public is asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to drive with care when travelling through, or in the vicinity, of the works.
The Department has programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when travelling in the area.
Completion of the work by March 29 is dependent on favourable weather conditions, however, the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
