Sections of the A158 near Lincoln will be closed overnight to allow for resurfacing work to take place.

Part of the A158 will be closed overnight for resurfacing

Work will start this Monday 10 May, to resurface damaged sections of the Wragby Road, between the junction with Scothern Lane and the junction with Stainton Lane.

The road will be closed overnight - between 8pm and 6am - whilst work takes place.

The road will be reopened to traffic during the day and access will be maintained for residents within the works area for the duration of the works.

Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Whilst we’ll always try to keep disruption caused by our roadworks to a minimum, I appreciate that even overnight works will affect some residents.

“Please bear with us whilst we work to improve Lincolnshire’s roads.”

Repairs are expected to take two weeks.

Traffic will be diverted as follows:

• Vehicles under 4.8m tall: via A158, A46, B1202 and A158, and vice versa.

• Vehicles over 4.8m tall: via A158, A46, B1225, A157 and A158, and vice versa, in order to avoid a low bridge in Market Rasen.
