A railway bridge will be closed for five weeks as “vital” road repairs take place.
Highways teams will work to seal and repair potholes on the Glynde Bridge in Glyne, near Ringmer.
Work is also underway to repoint the brick walls and paint the steel railings.
It will be closed from Monday September 12th.
The work will last until Monday 17 October.
A spokesman for East Sussex Highways said: “We are aware that this road closure will cause some disruption to motorists but it is important to ensure the safety of the public and workers while repairs are carried out.
“Investigations have shown that water has entered through the bridge, which can damage the structure and contribute to the formation of potholes in the road surface.
“Repairing the waterproof membrane and resurfacing will protect the bridge and result in a smoother ride for motorists using this stretch of road.”
People can walk across the bridge during the works.
Traffic will be diverted via the A27, A26, Ringmer Road and New Road.
Part of Lacys Hill running through the village and over the bridge will be closed.
