Both the hard shoulder and one lane will be closed until Easter.
The restrictions will then be lifted for the holiday period.
The Highways Agency is replacing the current steel barriers with large concrete blocks which prevent vehicles from crashing through the barrier to the other carriageway and are less likely to require repairs after accidents.
Dave Sledge from the Highways Agency said: "This is a very full programme of work."
