New longer-lasting materials will be used to replace worn out sections of St Bernards Avenue, Louth, later this month.
The council will be trialling a range of modified road-building materials during the £200,000 project, which is due to begin on Monday 22 July and is expected to be completed on Friday 2 August.
The cutting-edge materials should be significantly longer-lasting than the existing surfacing over the concrete carriageway, meaning potholes are less likely to form. If the trial is successful, this process could be used to replace the surfacing on other concrete roads across the county as they come to the end of their lives.
Because of the nature of the works, the road will need to be closed while the improvements are carried out, with traffic diverted via Eastgate, Church Street, Newmarket, Stewton Lane, Wood Lane and vice versa.
Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “Over the last few years we’ve successfully experimented with a range of new-and-improved road-building techniques, helping us do more with less.
“Of course, this new surfacing won’t last forever, but we predict it will be much more resilient that the existing surfacing on concrete roads, meaning less maintenance is required in future.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the works. We ask that motorists be patient and would encourage people to use alternative routes where possible.”
