Repairs to Byall Fen Drove, Manea, will cost up to £300,000 and mean the road will close for six weeks.
The county council said residents are being advised of the work that should start, weather permitting, on February 1.
A council spokesman said diversions are being well signposted and, if conditions are good, the closure could be less than the six weeks forecast.
The scheme involves widening the road in place and improvements to the surface.
Councillor Mark Buckton said he welcomed the decision by Cambridgeshire County Council to fund improvements to Byall Fen Drove.

“I understand that the county council will be rebuilding and underpinning the road edges, rather than just filling in holes, hence the lengthy closure,” he said.
County councillor Dave Connor said he had been pushing hard for the scheme to go ahead and was delighted the funds for it had been found.
