WORK on re-surfacing Greenfield Road, Holmfirth, is to start at the end of this week.
Kirklees Council's highways department said the work should take about two days, depending on the weather.
Traffic will still be able to use the busy A635, but slight delays are likely.
Department spokes- man Stuart Hampson said: "The treatment will prolong the life of the road by 10 years and help prevent potholes.
"Once it has bedded in it will improve skid resistance, as well."
But he warned: "We are asking all motorists, -especially motorcyclists - to pay attention to the 20mph signs that will be in force.
"Early in the process there might still be some loose surfacing before we sweep the road.
"If road users observe the speed limit and are mindful of the driving conditions there will be no problem.
"But it is a route well known to attract motorcyclists and they will be more at risk from the loose surface if they do not keep to the speed limit."
Mr Hampson said the road would be swept again after seven days and the surface should be back to normal.
The road markings would be replaced within a fortnight of the work finishing - again, subject to the weather.
