Strengthening works to Aro Aro Bridge on State Highway 2 in the Waioeka Gorge will get underway from Tuesday, January 28.
The works are expected to take six weeks to complete and a single lane closure with speed restrictions will be in place for the duration of the works.
NZ Transport Agency Bay of Plenty system manager Rob Campbell says motorists should plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys.
“These summer works are part of the biggest maintenance programme the transport agency has undertaken for the last decade.
“We appreciate delays can be frustrating for motorists but these important works help improve the road, increase safety and make everyone’s journeys more enjoyable.
“The transport agency thanks motorists for their patience.”
