Nearly a kilometre of St Kilda Road will be reduced to just one lane in each direction from Wednesday, as construction of the Metro Tunnel begins in earnest.
And Parkville's Grattan Street will be closed altogether for the next five years due to the project.
Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan said on Monday that motorists and passengers needed to plan ahead and leave extra time for their journey along St Kilda Road and through Parkville.
From February 14, St Kilda Road will be cut down to one lane of traffic in each direction for about 800 metres, aroud the Shrine of Remembrance and Toorak Road.
That 800-metre section will remain closed for the next four years.
The state government says tram access along St Kilda Road will "mostly operate as normal" over the four year construction period. Pedestrian and cycling access will be maintained.
Grattan Street near Melbourne University and the hospital precinct in Parkville will close in both directions from next Monday, February 19, for up to five years.
Pedestrian access will stay the same, but some cycling routes will be diverted.
The St Kilda Road works are to allow construction of the new Anzac Station, one of five stations being built as part of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel rail project, which will see a new underground rail line built beneath Melbourne's CBD.
