Harlaxton Road was set to be closed for at least part of this weekend for work to be carried out by Network Rail.
A road closure sign at the bridge said the road will be closed from 1pm on Saturday.
However, Lincolnshire County Council insisted this is not the case and the road will actually be closed from 6pm on Saturday.
On Thursday afternoon the county council announced the road will now not be closed and the work has been postponed indefinitely.
A spokesman for the county council said Network Rail still needs to carry out work but needs to book a road closure for some point in the near future.
