Drivers warned of overnight closures on the A38 in Lichfield

Drivers travelling on the A38 at night in Lichfield are being warned of forthcoming road closures.

Work is being carried out to resurface slip roads and repair bridge joints between Monday (June 26) and July 8.

The A38 will be closed between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday, for the duration of the roadworks.

A spokesperson for Kier, which is managing the works on behalf of Highways England, said: “There will be a total closure of the A38 northbound and southbound between the Streethay exit and entry slip roads and the exit slip for Cappers Lane.

“Northbound and southbound carriageways will not be closed at the same time.

“We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during this work.”

The company has also moved to reassure local residents over the impact the work will have on them.

The spokesperson added: “Every effort will be made to manage noise levels and additional lighting carefully.”
