The A47 between Guyhirn and Thorney will be closed next Tuesday and Wednesday as highway engineers install extra safety signs and road markings.
Diversions will be in place and, says Highways England, will be well sign posted.
The safety improvements will be made at Thorney Toll.
A Highways England spokesman said: “We are installing extra signs and road markings along this stretch of the A47 at Thorney Toll, where there have been a number of incidents.
“We will be working between 9pm and 6am and expect to be finished by Friday February 12.

The agency says there will be “a clearly signed diversion in place where eastbound traffic will exit before Thorney to head south at Whitepost roundabout”.
Traffic will then take the A1139 to Fletton Interchange, then east on the A605 towards Whittlesey, continuing through Coates and heading north to Guyhirn, then north on the A141 and re-joining the A47 at the A141 Guyhirn roundabout.
The diversion will be the reverse for westbound traffic.
