There will be road closures during the day for three weeks during the resurfacing work.
Queensway in St Leonards, between Combe Valley Way and Napier Road, will be closed to traffic for three weeks from Monday 18th July.
During this time, the road is closed on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A signposted diversion route will be set up.
A spokesman for East Sussex Highways said: “Queensway is a busy road with heavy traffic and has suffered wear and tear as a result.
“This work will result in a smoother ride for motorists using this road.
“We appreciate the disruption that a daytime road closure will cause, but this is necessary so that we can carry out the work safely and quickly, and use materials that are better able to withstand the future wear and tear of the heavy traffic on this road.
“We hope to minimize the impact on local residents by ensuring the road reopens over the weekends.”
The Queensway section, from the Napier Road junction to the Whitworth Road junction, will also undergo work later this year as part of a nationwide surface treatment program.
The process, in which roads are coated with a thin layer of bitumen and gravel, protects the pavement from water and frost that can cause potholes and can extend the life of the road by up to ten years.
More details on the works and detours can be found on the East Sussex Highways website.
