A restricted timeframe means Herts Highways will carry out work at night that would normally be restricted to daytime hours. Some operations that can cause noise disturbance, such as excavation, are to be carried out on the Friday night and maybe also Sunday night, with work finishing before midnight.
"We will do all we can to limit disruption by using equipment designed to minimise noise output. We will also turn off equipment when it is not in use," said Stuart Pile, Herts County Council's Executive Member for Highways and Transport.
"We ask for everyone's patience and for all road users to be extra careful and allow more time for their journeys while the work is ongoing."
Weather permitting, work should be finished by Tuesday morning.
