Highways England has announced that whilst the work happens a 20-mile diversion route will be in place - adding 30 minutes to journey times.
The diversion will take drivers via Brantham and up to the A14 at junction 55 at the Copdock interchange in Suffolk.
During the closures, all eastbound traffic will be diverted via junction 29 of the A12 onto the A120 and travel via the A1232, St Andrew's Avenue, A137, A14 and arrive at the A12/A14 junction 56, before travelling west to reach junction 55 at Copdock interchange.
The westbound traffic will use the same diversion route in reverse.
