The work will take place from 10 to 21 November, and to minimise any disruption to drivers the closures will take place overnight between 9pm and 6am.
Highways Agency project manager Steven Wright said:
During the overnight closures we will resurface the carriageway and replace road markings and road studs. To make maximum use of the closures and reduce the need for future work in the area we will also carry out a variety of maintenance inspections and work. During the closures diversion routes will be clearly signed and drivers should allow extra time when travelling in the area.
