Overnight resurfacing will take place on the A17 at Whaplode Manor/Saracen’s Head between September 17 and 29.

The work will take place between 7pm and 5am and the road will remain open throughout, with two/three-way temporary traffic lights in place. A convoy system will also be used to guide traffic.

Washway Road in Saracen’s Head will be closed for two nights when work is taking place at the junction between Washway Road and the A17. A signed diversion will be in place via Washway Road, Boston Road North, A17 and vice versa.

Roman Mastakov, project officer at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “This section of the road is deteriorating rapidly and is in need of repair so we’ll reconstruct the road, which should last more than 10 years. It’s a busy route so we’ll just work throughout the night and reopen the road during the daytime in order to minimise disruption.
