Up to eight weeks of repair work are scheduled for a road bridge on the busy A95 whisky road by Grantown.
BEAR Scotland is expected to begin work on Spey Bridge at the beginning of September.
A spokesman for the contractor said: "The work will involve a large number of small repairs to defective areas of reinforced concrete which were identified during an investigation back in 2018."
The spokesman added that, as part of the work, the bridge's arches and abutments will receive a protective coating to ensure their long-term future durability.
A system to manage the traffic while the work takes place is currently being developed.
The A95 runs south from Aviemore to Keith and connects the Speyside area and its distilleries to the A9 and the south.
