Rv. 70 is closed between Sunndalsøra and Oppdal at the county border due to a rockslide. It may be closed for several days, E39 functions as the detour, which means a travel between both towns take up to 5 hours instead of 1 hour.

The Rv. 70 has been cleared very fast. I thought it would take about a week.

E39 Sulafjord

A possible record-breaking suspension bridge across Sulafjorden. It would dwarf the current longest suspension bridges.

Some part of me believe that in the 60's or early 70's we would've cheered and applauded such a massive bridge/infrastructure project: Norway on the rise out of the backyard of Europe and into the future. Just take a look at some of the quite ridiculous hydropower projects that have been built (and are yet to be built) to sustain the most improbably placed factories. To build the country and give people work where they lived.
Today people are bemoaning and belittling such projects and would rather not have any road or bridge anywhere near them, thank you very much.
It's the shift from building for the common good to the mindset of "I'm-so-comfortable-that-I-don't-need-progress".

100m shorter than the hypothetical Messina Strait bridge single-span, though.

Not to speak of the equally probable Sicily-Tunis bridge, which will be complete a few years after Sagrada Familia.

Nah, Sagrad Familia should be completed in 2030-2032.

In these years we'll probably still discussing about a Messina Strait fixed link.
The Sicily-Tunisia railway tunnel (not bridge) thing, was a little more than a joke, of course.

Avalanches blocked E6 across Kvænangsfjellet in Northern Norway twice today. This is the only road in this part of Norway, the nearest alternate route goes through Finland and is a 150 - 650 kilometer detour, depending on how far you are from the closure point and what the destination is. Probably the best option is just to wait it out unless it's clear it's a multi-day closure.

From this pic it doesn't look so severe.

Norway wasn't any more of a backyard of Europe in the '60s and '70s than it is now and many of our hydropower projects precede that period with 4 to 5 decades (like Vemork power station in Rjukan which was the worlds largest power station upon completion in 1911).

Nordøyvegen

The Nordøyvegen project near Ålesund will start in October. They will build causeways, bridges and three undersea tunnels to link several islands north of Ålesund with the mainland. This will give Ålesund a concentration of six undersea tunnels (and possibly more if E39 gets tunneled under the fjords).
The main tunneling works will start in 2018.

The three undersea tunnels:

* Haramsfjord Tunnel 3505 m, -112 m
* Nogvafjord Tunnel 5730 m, -134 m
* Fjørtoftfjord Tunnel 3680 m, -118 m

It will be completed in 2022.

Probably ain`t gonna keep people from moving away from the islands. But at least the moving trucks wont need to take a ferry then.

If there is a left turn to be made, the lane widens substantially. What is the idea behind this? Is it meant that a left turning vehicle stops and other traffic can bypass it on the right? If so, why are there no road markings for this like in other countries? I've only seen this in Norway.

Yes, the idea is for through traffic to pass (although not at full speed) if a vehicle is waiting to make a left turn. The road marking is let out at this solution does`nt set any demands on the geometry of the trough-lane. It`s basically a widening with 2/3 of the widening behind the central line of the left-turn road, and 1/3 after. Is saves the space needed to make the intersection and is cheaper, as the widening is of a smaller extend that a full-channaled intersection. Used when the number of turning vehicles and through traffic is very low. Normally you`ll be able to drive straight through.
