Work to repair the storm-damaged jetty at East Cliff, in Lyme Regis, got under way this week.
A large excavator is being used and the work is expected to take around two weeks, although bad weather could cause delays.
A spokesman for Dorset Council (DC) apologised to the public for any inconvenience. He said that because the site area is small and self-contained it is hoped that any disruption will be minimal.
Cllr Ray Bryan, DC environment spokesman said: "This work is necessary … hopefully any disruption will be minimal but please do bear with us."
The works involve resetting an area of the lias cladding and repositioning some of the large masonry blocks.
