Highway 7 - Israel

In Israel, 7km of Highway 7 will open "in the next few days". This is a 2x2 grade-separated road (with provisions for future upgrade to 2x3) that would be classified motorway/freeway/autobahn in other countries. It will replace the old Highway 41 between Highway 4 and Highway 40, east of Ashdod.
