Outside of these hours, the road will be open, with traffic controlled using lane closures.
Every effort is being made to complete the noisiest work before 11pm during overnight work, to reduce disruption to local residents, said a council spokesman.
Gloucestershire Highways Local Highways Manager Sally Godwin has written to local residents and businesses informing them of the work and the times the road will be closed.
She said: “Whilst we know that this closure will inconvenience people, in the long term it will benefit local people and the many commuters who use this road.
“Signs have been put up along the A38 to warn drivers about the closure and clear diversion signs will be in place throughout the work.
“As always, we would like to thank residents and motorists for their co-operation while this important work is taking place.”
Councillor Will Windsor-Clive, cabinet member for communities, said: “We’ve prioritised work to make sure the busiest roads like the A38 are up to standard, and I am really pleased that highway teams are working on Sundays and throughout the nights to avoid shutting the road at peak times.
“The A38 is a very busy road, and we are doing all we can to reduce the impact on people getting to work through the week.
“I hope local residents and motorists agree the short term disruption is well worth the longer term benefits of having a greatly improved road.”
Jackie Hall, county councillor for Quedgeley, said, “Whilst the road works will cause some inconvenience, I know that Gloucestershire Highways have tried to minimise the disruption. I’m sure the road surface will be much improved once it is done.”
Vic Rice, county councillor for Quedgeley, said, “This much needed work forms part of the county council’s continuing efforts to keep roads in good condition. It will probably cause some disruption, which Gloucestershire Highways will try to keep to a minimum, but I am sure motorists will benefit from the new surface.”
