Yes, I noticed later that it is asphalt, but it does look very gray

Well, in the majority of the greek roads (especially non highways) the asphalt that is being used is not of high quality. This happens because they use gravel made by limestone, a rock that is not very resistant in friction. Also this influences the colour of the asphalt, making it less black...and that's why you misunderstood it for concrete...

Here are some details about the current projects and their completion date.

Egnatia odos: Motorway length=670Km, Project completion:within 2008, 165 km left and are currently u/c.
Motorway cost:4.4 bln Euros.
This motorway is part of the E90 pan European corridor.

Pathe motorway:length=730Km,Project completion:Within 2009,230 km left.
Motorway cost: bln Euros.
The motorway is part of the E75 Pan European corridor.

Ionian motorway:Length=382Km,Construction process will start within may 2007 and expected to be completed within 2013.
Motorway cost:1.8 bln Euros.
The motorway is part of the E65 Pan European corridor.

Tripoli-korinthos-kalamata-sparth motorway:Length=205Km
Project expected to be finished within 2012.
Motorway cost:1.044 bln Euros.
The motorway is part of the E65 Pan European corridor.

Central Greece motorway:Length=232Km
The project is currently freeze due to an objection on the bidding process by one of the competitors.
Cost:1.6 Bln Euro.
Part of the E92 Pan European corridor.

ΒΟΑΚ motorway(north Crete motorway):Length=226Km
The project is partly constructed, funds for the whole motorway aren't secured yet
Cost should be around 1.4 bln Euros.
The road is part of the Pan European corridor E75.

All those projects will give Greece a total motorway length of 2445 km(and with the existing network almost 3000km) , and the cost is calculated around 12 bln Euro.

And this will be the map of motorways in greece after the completion of those projects:

Actually even more since i cant find the exact cost of the pathe motorway, most of it was completed during the 96-2000 period, but there are around 230 km more to be constructed and i cant find the cost of those.
Plus i also have no clues about the motorway that is to be constructed in crete

I read that the costs of the motorway that is to be constructed in Crete will amount to 1,4 bln Euro. It will run from Chania to Lasithi totaling 400 km.

It seems that the part that you are probably speaking for its u/c still, but between greece and bulgaria in the future will be 4 in total motorways(egnatia's vertical axes) to connect the 2 countries, and 1 more freeway.

Here you can see the progress of the constructions, its from February 2007 though.
