The A1101 at Welney in Norfolk has been closed due to flooding since Boxing Day. This latest closure, means people travelling from the south, Littleport and Ely, have to follow a long diversion to get to the village.
The diversion takes them through Downham Market, a trip of around 30 miles.
Chairman of Welney Parish Council Ken Goodger said."There once was a plan to raise the road by six inches, which would make a considerable difference to the number of days per year that you can pass through. Another way is to dredge the Ouse River that these washes drain into."
Now six electronic signs are to be introduced soon to give drivers more information about the depth of the flood water.
It's hoped it will allow drivers to make more informed decisions about passing through shallow flood water, rather than a sign simply saying "Road Closed".
