You might have some problems, but rather small. If you can, do not ask old people - english wasn't very popular in communist era.

I.e. I'm referring to instances such as filling out rental car applications, asking directions from locals if any, dealing with police and people of authority, etc.....
If you'll be renting a car at WAW airport, you'll be fine in English. If you have any issues with the police, they should be able to find an officer who speaks some English. For buying fuel in a petrol station, English is sufficient. Asking for directions might be a challenge. I suggest using GPS or studying your routes in advance.

It depends on how old they are. Younger generation's English is defenitely better than older one, because as @Mcarling has already said older generation didn't use to learn English in communism time(only Russian, and rather basic).

And protip: a couple of words in local language always make people super kind and more eager to help.

Yeah, kurwa is a good opening line, as some Poles taught me 10 years ago on a school exchange in Brzeg.

It is uncertain what number will be assigned to this road, but in most sources it is stated that it will be S7. S6 (trasa Lęborska/Kaszubska) will come from the west towards Chwaszczyno, where it will meet up with OMT (S7) and should continue towards the current Tricity Beltway along what is currently DK 20, still as S6.

No, it will rather be S7 as it will be the extension of the southern bypass of Gdańsk starting from the Gdansk-South interchange

It's an obscenity that means prostitute.

Obviously that interchange shouldn't be called kreuz Chwaszczyno , I was just trying to be geographically precise

The tender will be announced next week. Marki bypass was moved to appendix A1 of the National Road Construction Programme few months ago.

The list above is covered by appendix no. 5.

You should take those plans with a grain of salt, it's just a proposed plan, nothing official and definitive yet.
