The Edenderry Municipal District have apologised for the short notice after works commenced in the town centre on Tuesday evening.
The works will take place on St Mary's road and JKL street (R402) for the next week, until Friday night.
Workers will be out and traffic management measures will be in place during the works each night from 7pm until 5am.
The Edenderry Municipal District apologises for the disruption but says that the roadworks are necessary for the maintenance of the carraigeway.
These roadworks were postponed due to adverse weather conditions a number of weeks ago.
