The final stages of roadworks for the Spirit of Sittingbourne redevelopment are due to take place.
Through May, works will be carried out by Erith on behalf of the consortium to allow minor utility links to be put in and resurfacing of the roads.
They will take place in two stages across Sittingbourne town centre.
The first will involve four weeks from Monday, May 4, in St Michael's Road, Dover Street and Fountain Street.
Following that, West Street and Station Street will be shut for two weeks from Thursday, May 28.
The works will take place between 8pm and 5am on weekdays and possibly at weekends, depending on how the project progresses.
Signed diversions will be put in place to tell drivers about the closure times and which roads they can use as an alternative.
A Spirit of Sittingbourne spokesman said: "The final stage of Spirit of Sittingbourne roadworks will occur over May to allow for utility installations and road resurfacing.
"We are working to minimise the disruption caused to any motorists, by undertaking the work overnight and clearly signposting alternative routes.
"Although Bourne Place openings will not be occurring on the previous timetable, due to the pandemic and lockdown measures, we are working to ensure the work is completed as quickly as possible.
"Localised access will remain in place, and contractors will assist where possible to minimise inconvenience to residents and motorists.
"The contractors will be observing government health and safety guidance, with the appropriate social distancing measures."
The plan was to have the development fully up and running by "early 2020".
