US 19, Pinellas County, Florida, USA

November 13, 2014

A 2.5 mile (4 km) stretch of de-facto freeway opens to traffic in suburban Pinellas County, Florida. It's a stretch of US 19 from Whitney Road to State Road 60. It opened with four lanes, but some last works will be done to provide six lanes.

There is now 12 miles of free-flow US 19 in this area.

S10 Mühlviertler Schnellstrasse, Austria

The first section of the Mühlviertler Schnellstrasse (S10) opens today in the Austrian state of Upper Austria. It's 5,9km long and stretches between the junctions of Freistadt South and Freistadt North. It's part of the future S10 motorway connecting the current end of A7 and the Czech border. One day it will be connected with the Czech D3 to Prague.

A 17 kilometer new stretch of E4 opens to traffic near Sundsvall, Sweden. It runs from Myre to Sundsvall/Skönsmon, though the first few kilometers from Myre is not a four-lane highway.

The bridge across the Sundsvall Fjord will open to traffic next month, completing the E4 Sundsvall bypass.

PA-28, Pittsburgh, USA

November 17, 2014

A 2 mile stretch of Pennsylvania State Route 28 has been reconstructed into a freeway in Pittsburgh. The 5-year reconstruction project was completed today.

The $ 181 million project turned this stretch of PA 28 into a four-lane, divided highway without traffic signals. The two T-intersections with the 31st Street and 40th Street Bridges have been replaced by interchanges. This allows free-flow traffic from I-579 all the way to Kittanning.

US 31, Carmel, USA

November 25, 2014

A nearly 3 mile stretch of freeway opens to traffic in Carmel, Indiana, a northern suburb of Indianapolis. The new freeway runs from Old Meridian Street to the Keystone Parkway.

Old US 31 was closed for over half a year to expedite construction. It opened a year earlier than when conventional workzones would have been implemented.

It is part of a larger project to upgrade US 31 to a six-lane freeway from I-465 to SR-38.

A 4.7 km stretch of A26 opened to traffic from Jork to Horneburg, west of Hamburg. It is open in the direction of Stade only, due to concerns of the local intersection of K26 and B73 in Neukloster not being able to handle all traffic to and from A26.

As reported in the Russian thread, a 72 kilometer segment of M11 (Moscow - St. Petersburg motorway) opened to traffic in Tver Oblast. It runs from north of Torzhok to northwest of Vyshny Volochyok, bypassing that city on the west.

The next part of the Silkeborg Motorway (route 15) in western Denmark opens today, its the 11 kilometers between Hårup and Låsby located between Silkeborg and Aarhus.


Now there is only the 18 kilometer part through Silkeborg left and that part opens in 2016.

This stretch will connect the new motorway at Hårup with the other part of the route 15 motorway that now ends in Funder west of Silkeborg.
