Motorists are being given advance warning that the A140 will be closed at Pulham Market for two weekends in the New Year.
The closures are to allow surfacing to take place on a new £1.5m roundabout being constructed by May Gurney on behalf of Norfolk County Council.
Although the A140 closure will have most impact, the other approaches to the new roundabout, the B1134 Station Road and Julian Road, will also be closed.
The first weekend closure will be from 8pm on Friday January 16 until 6am on Monday January 19.
In the event of bad weather, the following weekend will be used.
Before the January weekend closure, Julian Road will be closed for the preceding three days, from 8pm on Tuesday January 13, or from Tuesday January 20 in the event of bad weather, to allow work to be carried out on site levels before the weekend closure of the whole junction.

Local diversions will be signed using Wood Lane, Common Road, Colgate End Road and Julian/Tattlepot Road to enable access to Pulham Market.
A second weekend closure of the junction, including the A140 and the other approach roads, will take place from 8pm on Friday February 13 to 6am on Monday February 16. Again, in the event of bad weather the following weekend will be used.
During the two weekend closures, A140 traffic will be diverted via the A143, A146 and A47. Warning signs will be placed at strategic locations, including the A11, A12 and A14.
The six-month project at the crossroads will remove a notorious accident blackspot on the A140.
