The busy arterial road is closed between Hunter Street and Honeysuckle Drive, with crews working around the clock to lay the light rail track across the road linking the Newcastle Interchange.
The closure will remain in place until 5.00am on Monday.
In the meantime, detours will be in place to divert traffic via Hunter Street and Albert Street at Wickham, while traffic will still be able access Honeysuckle Drive from Hannell Street and local access to Beresford Street via Bellevue Street will be maintained with traffic control measures in place.
