Remaining finishing works at the junction of Queens Road East and University Boulevard are to take place over the school summer holidays to minimise disruption to motorists.
Completion of the works, which include the construction of new utilities manholes, will mark another step towards the completion of the tram extension project.
Whilst the work is carried out at the junction from the evening of Friday 24th July, trams will continue to be put through the final stages of testing on the new line to Beeston and Chilwell.
However, temporary restrictions and diversions will be needed for other road users for approximately three weeks.
This will enable traffic to continue to turn left from University Boulevard into Queens Road East and straight on from Woodside Road into University Boulevard.
Some bus services which would normally travel through the junction may also be diverted.
A spokesman for the NET Phase Two Project explained: “The remaining work at the junction has been held back until the start of the summer holidays when local roads are traditionally quieter, and every effort is being made to minimise disruption.
“However, we apologise for any inconvenience and would ask for people to consider an alternative route in or out of the city centre and allow extra time for their journey.
“The work will not have an impact on tram testing as the new lines to Chilwell and Clifton are prepared for the start of passenger services shortly.”
