Traders and shoppers should brace themselves for disruption during a 20-day repair scheme in St Albans city centre.
A £32,000 scheme to repair damage and defects in the road and pavement of Market Place gets underway on Monday.
The repairs are being carried out by county council contractors Ringway, and will see the road closed between High Street and Spencer Street from 7.30am-6pm, excluding market days.
A signed alternative route will be in place.
Terry Douris, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “These works form part of Hertfordshire County Council’s on-going commitment to maintain and improve our roads for the benefit of all road users in Hertfordshire.

“We appreciate that these works are likely to cause some inconvenience to motorists and would ask everyone for their co-operation and patience while the work is in progress. Our contractors need to take particular care with this specialist work to ensure a long-lasting improvement. This takes time, hence why we have scheduled 20 days to complete the work. However, the contractors will do their utmost to complete the work as quickly as possible.”
The work is weather dependent and from time to time unforeseen circumstances can arise and work may continue outside the advertised hours.
Any changes to the proposed start date, duration or working hours will be announced on the information boards on site and will be available here.
