A38 overnight closures – Streethay, near Lichfield
We previously informed you of overnight carriageway closures on the A38 at Streethay. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are rescheduling our northbound closure. 
To ensure the safety of road users, we are required to undertake essential maintenance activities on the main A38 carriageway. To allow us to complete this work, we will be installing overnight closures on the A38 northbound and southbound carriageways at Streethay, including both slip roads. Following the reopening of the carriageways, the northbound slip road will reopen and the southbound slip road will remain closed.
Our work within the Streethay area of Lichfield include piling and utility diversions on both sides of the A38.

We will be installing the following overnight closures:
• Rescheduled northbound closure: 12 December 2022
• Southbound: 10 December 2022 and 17 December 2022
The carriageway will close from 9pm each evening and reopen at 5am, before rush hour. At the point of reopening, a speed limit of 40 mph will remain in place, along with narrow lanes.
