Motorists are being warned about roadworks on the M90 between Kelty and Halbeath.
A southbound section is being resurfaced in a £290,000 project.
This 1.2km southbound section of the M90 is used by around 15,000 vehicles every day and surface maintenance works are now needed.
The work will begin at 7.30pm on Friday September 15 and will take place over one weekend using 24-hour working.
Work is expected to be completed by 6.30am on Monday September 18.
A contraflow system will be in place between Kelty and Halbeath during the work.
The M90 Junction 4 southbound off and on slip roads will be closed throughout the weekend due to the location of the surfacing improvements, and signed diversions will be in place for motorists.
The Junction 4 southbound on slip diversion will be via the northbound M90 Junction 5 at Gairneybridge to then head southbound on the M90.
Traffic wishing to use Junction 4 southbound off slip will be diverted south to M90 Junction 3 at Halbeath then onto the northbound M90.
Consultation has taken place with relevant stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east representative, said: “This next section of improvements for the M90 will create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption as much as possible during the improvements, and have planned the works to take place over one weekend to limit the overall impact of the scheme.
“We encourage road users to follow any signs and traffic management that is in place for their safety as well as our teams, and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
