Check the arrows:
Red arrow = sure to be delayed, new completion date TBD (unknown)
Yellow arrow pointing down - likely to be delayed, new completion date TBD
Yellow arrow pointing up - likely to be open sooner, new completion date tbd

At what temperature can construction of roads continue to be built? Like binding layers, asphalt, etc? Currently Poland is around -3 to +2C..just interesting if work can still be progressed during these conditions.

Usually around 5 - 7 °C. However it is possible to pave asphalt below freezing, but it's not an optimal solution and "only if you really have to". Most construction companies are not willing to give a warranty as they do in normal conditions.

Tender for S8 (border of Mazovia to bypass of Zambrow) was announced today. Length is 14.9 km. It's a third contract announced this year for building S8 between Warsaw and Bialystok. All sections of S8 in Podlaskie voivodeship are now either completed or undergoing tender process.

GDDKiA is working on implementing the largest integrated telematic road management system in Europe called National Traffic Management System (it will cover A and S roads). Initial costs will run at approximately 700 million PLN and first parts of this new system will be online in 2015.

Website is already under construction:

GDDKiA published a video showing the new experimental signage introduced on A1:

It's definitely a step in the right direction.

I agree, not much changes just added exit numbers. Small step in right direction.

There are a few more changes than that - for example overhead signs are now all the same height, direction arrows are properly placed over lanes, interchange names and selection of cities to display on signs are now reasonable. It's obviously not a revolution, we hoped for a lot more, but that's a lot better than what we have today.

So here's the result of my work, Polish version but I think it is easy to figure out what is what.
"Obejście" or "obwodnica" = bypass
"Bezkolizyjna" = grade-separated
"Most" = bridge

Does that mean on and offramps are actually numbered in the Polish system?

I respectfully disagree. Having the arrows aligned with the lanes which they represent makes, in my opinion, a big difference.
