Drivers have been warned of potential delays as “important” carriageway improvements take place on a busy north-east road.
A £390,000 project will start on Monday and last four weeks on the A90 at Stonehaven.
It will involve teams from BEAR Scotland carrying out drainage and resurfacing work on the southbound carriageway and making changes to the central reservation before Cowie Water.
Drainage works will take place at the southbound sliproad at Spurryhillock.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north-east representative, said: “This important £390,000 project near Stonehaven will upgrade the drainage systems and carriageway structure on this section of the A90, helping to create a safer road surface, with resurfacing works ensuring the road continues to operate smoothly.
“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both our workforce as well as road users, and we’ll do all we can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams work to carry out these essential works on this stretch of the A90.
“We encourage road users to plan their journey in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real-time journey information and leaving some extra time to reach their destination.”
The project will take place over four phases lasting from April 22 to May 18.
A number of different traffic restrictions will be put in place by the roads body while the work is carried out.
Starting on Monday, a single lane closure will take place with a 50mph speed limit for eight days.

It will lead to work starting at the Cowie Water beginning on April 30 until May 9 with single lane closures on both the north and southbound carriageway with a 50mph speed limit.
On May 10 to 14, the A90 at Stonehaven will be resurfaced on the southbound carriageway. A contraflow will be in operation.
It means a single lane of traffic will be travelling in each direction on the northbound carriageway.
The final phase of work will start on May 13.
Work will take place to see barriers installed at the A90 beside Stonehaven.
It will also involve drainage work at the southbound slip road at Spurryhillock.
A lane will be closed on the northbound carriageway throughout the day with a 50mph speed limit.
BEAR has said overnight work will also take place between 7.30pm to 6.30am for five nights.
This will involve a closure to traffic on the southbound carriageway.
All traffic restrictions are expected to be removed by 6.30am on May 18.
