A footpath in Market Harborough is being closed to pedestrians for five days.
The footpath in The Ridgeway, opposite Ridgeway Primary Academy, which is officially called Prow A52, is being closed by Leicestershire County Council from next Saturday, February 14.
It has been granted so workers from Persimmon Homes can safely construct a manhole for the new nearby housing development.
Pedestrians will be diverted away from the 15-metre length of footpath.
New traffic signs are also being installed.
