That's not a new motorway, it's an upgrade of an old one. Upgrades aren't considered in this thread.

It's a new 2nd carriageway and a re-alignment, isn't it?

Most of new stretches of A3 are whole new highway, just not only upgrades.

Yes, I know, but a motorway along that route have existed before. A3 realignments have never been included in this thread.

There is conjecture it may be renumbered to I-364 at some point.
The ribbon cutting was October 31, actual traffic opening was November 2.

DTŚ, Poland

Sections Z4 and G1 of DTŚ (Drogowa Trasa Średnicowa) opened today in Zabrze and Gliwice.
This section is 3 km long and includes an interchange with A1 motorway.

DTŚ is the main east-west artery of the Silesian Metropolis. It is mostly a 2x3 expressway.

Opening of this section also means finishing the first complete loop of grade-separated dual carriageways in Poland (length ~60 km).

Today 5 km of SS 106, in Southern Italy, opened for traffic. It is an expressway, not motorway, and connects two SS 106 stretches already upgraded in the past years, around the town of Nova Siri Scalo. 80 M€ was the cost.

A229, Kaliningrad, Russian Federation

8 November 2014

A 17 kilometer stretch of A229 in Kaliningrad oblast, Russia, has been upgraded to motorway with a 120 km/h design speed. It runs from Zaozerye, just east of the Kaliningrad ring road, to Kurgan, a village not to be confused with the larger city in Siberia. It connects to the older four-lane highway at the village of Kurgan. There is now a four-lane highway from Kaliningrad to the A216-A229 split at Talpaki.

MD-200 Intercounty Connector, Maryland, USA

8 November 2014

The last segment of the Intercounty Connector (ICC) toll road, or Maryland State Route 200, opened on November 8th. It is a 1.5 mile (2km) segment of highway between Interstate 95 and US Route 1 in Prince George's County, Maryland. The road is motorway grade except for a signalized, continuous-flow T-intersection at its US-1 terminus. All toll collection is automated. Includes a half-interchange with Virginia Manor Road.

This completes the multi-year ICC project to connect I-270 with I-95, a project which had been planned for decades.

Opening at the same time as part of a separate project is a new interchange between I-95 and Konterra Drive (formerly Van Dusen Road) about a mile away. Both projects share the same new collector-distributor roads on I-95.

It's really important to mention that this section is by no means complete, there are still heavy landscaping works to be done around the motorway due to the shifting terain. Unfortunately this section was opened much too soon, purely for political reasons, it literally isn't safe to drive on. This is a reather big risk of a landslide over or under the road, acording to recent pictures :shitfy: .

Currently speed is limited to 80 km/h on the dangerous section and works are being done around the road. Sadly, they won't be ready until winter, so we will see if next year it stays in the same place...

Be cautious when using this road!
