Drivers are being advised that resurfacing work will be carried out at a busy road junction later this month (June).
Contractors working for Durham County Council will carry out the work at the A179 Sheraton Interchange, on the outskirts of Hartlepool, over five nights starting on Monday 23 June.
The overnight work will take place, between 7pm and 7am, and the road will be closed during those times.
Diversion routes will be in place while the night-time road closures are in force but the road will remain open during the day.
Drivers are being warned to expect delays and to plan for extended journey times.
John Reed, head of technical services at Durham County Council, said: “These works are part of our on-going resurfacing programme.
“We are carrying out the work at night in order to minimise inconvenience to drivers but unfortunately some delays will be unavoidable.
“We would urge people to plan ahead and we appreciate their patience while the work is underway.”
