Motorists using the northbound A9 south of Pitlochry are being warned that 10mph convoys will be in operation over nights from the end of this weekend.
The project will see improvements made to a 400m section of the carriageway at the end of the Ballinluig dualled section, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.
A section of the A9 off-slip to Pitlochry will also be worked on.
The improvements are scheduled to start this Sunday and will take five nights to complete.
The project will take place between 7pm and 7am each night with the project expected to be completed by 7am on Friday 15 November.
A spokesperson for contractor BEAR Scotland said: "To ensure the safety of road workers and road users, a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the project.
"The off-slip to Pitlochry will also be closed due to the location of the surfacing work, with motorists wishing to access Pitlochry diverted via the A924 adding approximately two minutes onto journey times.
"For safety, the slip road has to remain closed during the daytime on Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 November due to deep excavations in the road surface."
Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said the traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and road users.
He commented: “These surfacing improvements will help address any defects on this section of the A9 and greatly improve the road surface for motorists."
