If the construction doesn't impact the maxspeed, the lanes, the alignment, nor the classification of the road - then its not really under construction. If the road changes alignment for a long time (like routing around construction) - follow the new alignment and mark the construction area with a tag. 

Usually digging a giant trench down a primary road to build underground access (like the Los Angeles subway did)  either closes the road or drastically changes its classification. (The 2 dead-ends become residential, as it is "for residents only" / "no through traffic". 

If all it does is make the road lumpy - everything around the road changes, but the road itself doesnt (patches, metal plates) change the surface of the road and mark construction on the areas alongside it. 

If there is a set schedule of closures (every night from 12-5AM, maybe that can be put on the closed section with tags as well.
