I-69, Indiana, USA

December 9, 2015

A major part of Interstate 69 opens to traffic today in the U.S. state of Indiana. It runs from Crane to the southern side of Bloomington, covering 27 miles / 43 kilometers. This means there is now a four-lane highway between Indianapolis and Evansville, though the works to convert the rest of the route between Bloomington and Indianapolis into I-69 are not yet completed.

S17 Suixi Expressway, China

10 December 2015

The 68 kilometer long Suining - Xichong (Suixi) Expressway opens to traffic in Sichuan province. It is a four-lane expressway that connects the G93 near Suining with G75 north of Xichong. Chinese Wikipedia labels it as S17, Baidu Maps shows no number at this point. The opening is referred to as a 'trial operation', which is not uncommon in China.

A4, Netherlands

18 December 2015

The missing link of the A4 motorway opened to traffic this evening around 7.30 p.m. The new 7 kilometer motorway runs from Delft-south to the Kethelplein motorway interchange (A4/A20) in Schiedam. It runs partially below grade and in a two kilometer long tunnel. The construction cost was € 660 million.

Construction started in 1967, but was ceased in 1972. The project was re-approved in 1985, but funding disappeared in 1998. It was then approved for a third time and finally constructed between 2011 and 2015. It was the single most anticipated motorway project in the Netherlands.

It opened only in the northbound direction today, it will open Sunday night for southbound traffic as well.
