BOOTAWA Road in Bootawa will be closed to all traffic starting 7am Monday September 29 and finishing 5pm Friday October 3 weather-permitting.
Greater Taree City Council said the road needs to be closed so a damaged culvert, about 2km east of the Gloucester Road junction, can be replaced.
Residents will be able to access their properties during the closure period, from either the Gloucester Road end to the west, or by using The Bucketts Way coming from Tinonee to the east.
Council said it is undertaking these works during the school holidays so fewer people are affected.
Drivers are advised to follow the signage being put in place next week, and directions from council staff working on the project.
