The work, which is expected to take seven weeks, will see the whole of Bolton Road from Manchester Road to Market Street resurfaced.
Bolton Road will be closed each weekend for the duration of the scheme but most of the work will take place during weekdays using temporary traffic signals.
It is thought work at the junction of Market Street and Bolton Road between Manchester Road and Chew Moor Lane will be carried out on Sundays.
It will start on Monday, September 24.
