A BUSY main road will be shut for two weeks while resurfacing takes place.
Drivers have been told they will have to find another route to bypass the work at New Mill.
A section of the A635 New Mill Road will be closed from Saturday, October 18, until November 2.
The work is part of continuing road reconstruction in the village. It has been planned for the schools' half-term break, when traffic is usually lighter.
A Kirklees Council spokeswoman said: "There will be a diversion, but drivers are being asked to avoid the area if possible."
The two-week closure is being carried out to allow resurfacing between Bromley Avenue and Moorcroft Park Drive.
Kerbs and pavements will be rebuilt between Kirkroyds Lane and The Crescent.
The spokeswoman added:
"The temporary closure is necessary because of the narrow width between Bromley Avenue and The Crescent."
She said a changed road layout and new markings would help to reduce the number of accidents.
The diversion will run between the centres of New Mill and Holmfirth.
From New Mill, it will follow the A616 Huddersfield Road to Honley traffic lights and then the A6024 Woodhead Road to Holmfirth.
From Holmfirth, it will be same route in reverse.
