Work on the essential carriageway resurfacing on the B922 Cluny to Kinglassie double bends will now begin on Monday, September 5.
The £120,000 project was programmed to commence this coming Monday (August 29) but has been delayed until next week.
The work will still be completed within 2 weeks, weather permitting.
For the works to be undertaken safely and to comply with Health and safety legislation, the road will be closed during this time, with diversion routes put in place. The works will be carried out Monday to Friday.
Access for local people will be maintained but there will be no through access.
Local residents will receive a letter in the next few days with more detail on local diversions and access.
Fife Council apologised for any inconvenience caused by the works and thanked the public for their patience and co-operation during this time.
