The Highways Agency will be carrying out the work on the southbound carriageway, between Junction 3 (near Halesowen) and 4 (Lydiate Ash), from Monday, January 28.
Due to take four weeks to complete, the work is being carried out on the drainage system and to gullies in a section of the hard shoulder.
Restrictions will be place while the work is underway, including a 24-hour, 50 mph speed limit.
Between Monday and Fridays, two narrow lanes will run from 8pm until 4pm the following day. Three narrow lanes will run between 4-8pm.
Between 8pm on Fridays, until 4pm on Monday, two narrow lanes will be running.

“We advise drivers to allow extra time for their journeys.”
