Temporary traffic lights will be set up in Acle to identify a suspected damaged water pipe on a stretch of road which is notorious for flooding.
The corner of Norwich Road has concerned residents in the village for a number of years with drivers having to take evasive action by using the wrong side of the road following spells of heavy rain.
A spokesman for Norfolk County Council said work to locate possible damage to a surface water pipe on the junction with The Street will start on Monday, November 4.
Work is expected to last until Thursday, November 7.
Following a period of heavy rain earlier this month, cars could been seen driving on the right-hand side of the road to avoid a deep pool of water which had built up outside of St Edmund Church.
A number of residents said they use an alternative route through the village because of the problems.
