Karen Cassar, Assistant Director at Lincolnshire County Council’s Highways department, said: “One of the team working on our improvements to the A1031 in Tetney has recently tested positive for coronavirus.
“As a result, we’ve temporarily paused the works here so the rest of the on-site team can self-isolate, with the scheme set to resume for two final weeks next month.
“In the meantime, the road has been made safe and is fully re-opened.
“I want to take the opportunity to thank everyone for bearing with us and wish the person who tested positive a speedy recovery.”
When the roadworks recommence on Monday December 7, daytime road closures will be in place for two weeks from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
The affected stretch of road is between just south of the Tetney Bridge/School Lane junction, and north of Tetney Village Hall.
Access for residents, school buses, emergency services and others will be maintained throughout the final set of works.
The diversion route for the closure will be via A1031 / B1201 / A16 / A1098 / A1031, and vice versa.
