A section of the A95 at Cromdale is benefitting from £120,000 resurfacing improvements.
The resurfacing improvements on the Aviemore-Keith road will address any defects in the road and create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
The project started on Monday and is programmed to take place over five days.
The improvements are taking place between 7.30am and 5.30pm each day, with surfacing due to be completed by 5.30pm on Friday.
A spokesperson for BEAR Scotland said: “The surfacing improvements on the A95 in Cromdale got underway yesterday as planned.
"Following recent announcements, we need to ensure that we leave our sites in a manner which is safe for public use.
"We therefore plan to complete the works at Cromdale as planned by Friday.”
To ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours.
All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These £120,000 surfacing improvements near Cromdale have been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A95 for motorists.
“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists.
"We’ve planned the project to avoid working at the weekend to reduce any disruption to road users as much as possible."
