Lanes leading up to the Haudagain roundabout will be closed for four consecutive weekends from tomorrow.
They will be in place on Auchmill Road.
The restrictions will allow preparatory work to be undertaken to construct the new A92/A96 Haudagain improvement link road junction.
Lane two westbound and lanes two and three eastbound will be shut as works will commence at 7pm each Friday until 7am each Monday to allow continuous 24-hour working.
A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “The work planned for the A96 Auchmill Road will be carried out during weekends to minimise disruption to road users where possible.
