Despite the wintry blast, the A285 at Duncton will be reopened ahead of schedule, under traffic light control, from late afternoon on Friday, 3 December.
The lights will be in place for at least the next fortnight while the remaining works are completed and are for the protection of both the workforce and road users.
The morning traffic control currently in place for Seaford College will cease after Friday morning.
The section of road, just south of the Seaford College entrance, has been closed for safety reasons following a slippage of earth over a culvert that spans beneath the carriageway.
Businesses in Duncton, Petworth and the surrounding areas have been able to open as usual throughout and will continue to do so.
