Road improvements worth £2.4m will take place in Bedfordshire over the winter.
The construction company Interserve Construction Ltd has been appointed to carry out works on the A421, the M1 at junction 13 and the A5 through Milton Keynes and Dunstable.
The work is expected to begin in the winter and be completed in early 2016.
It will involve repairing road surfaces and road markings, resurfacing and replacing and installing new signs.
Highways England has said disruption to drivers will be kept to a minimum.
“This scheme will make journeys better for local people by improving safety for the thousands of drivers that use these roads each day.
“We will work with the contractors on how the works will affect people, but I'd like to assure drivers, where possible, disruption will be kept to a minimum and to bear with us while the works take place as there will be a small amount of pain for a large amount of gain."
