The work takes place between 9pm and 6am during which time traffic will be diverted further south on the M42 to junction 6 where it will turn round and head north to junction 7 to join the M6.
Highways Agency Project Manager Richard Gulliver said:
Although the work will be carried out at night to minimise disruption drivers should still allow extra time for their journeys.
