The road will closed at Legbourne between Monday February 27 and Wednesday February 29.

The road will then be closed at South Reston between Thursday March 1 and Tuesday March 6.

Traffic will be diverted via the A157, A1104, A16 and vice versa.

Tim Mawson, area highways manager for Lincolnshire County Council, said: “It is important that we resurface these roads and restore the A157 to top condition. We have to ensure the roads are in a safe condition for motorists to use.

The council said motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.
