BR-277, western Paraná state, Brazil

July 16, 2013

2-lane addition on a 14.4 km section of BR-277 between Medianeira (42,400 inh.) and Matelândia (16,300 inh.) municipalities, on western Paraná state.

It was certainly one of the busiest 2-lane sections in the country. Now, from Foz do Iguaçu (260,000 inh., Brazilian/Argentinian/Paraguayan border) to Matelândia there are 73 km of 2x2 highway. 70 km still left to Cascavel, 292,000 inh., largest city on western Paraná, one of the most important agribusiness centres in the country.

If you guys check on Google Maps, you'll note everybody (from Curitiba, from Northern Paraná, from São Paulo, from anywhere in the country) must go through Cascavel to reach Foz do Iguaçu. So it's really a very painful bottleneck.

Circle Drive, Saskatoon, Canada

31 July

The last remaining segment of Circle Drive, a semi-freeway loop around Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, opens to traffic today. It's the southwestern segment that is up to freeway standards and includes a bridge across the South Saskatchewan River.

This completes the loop or beltway of Saskatoon. Not all of Circle Drive is a freeway though, there are traffic signals at the northern part.

A 5 mile stretch of six-lane freeway opens to traffic in Bakersfield, California. It runs west from Truxtun Avenue to Allen Road. It is the first freeway in western Bakersfield, and the first new freeway in the Bakersfield area in more than 30 years. The freeway is toll-free, but unfortunately does not give direct access to either CA-58 east or CA-99.
