Have the works on A18 lot 8, Scicli-Modica been started yet?

Yes, although red parts will take ages to be completed, possibly even as late as 2020. Currently, the most problematic stretches to drive are the orange ones, since they are 1+1 due to roadworks. Red sections are still in their original shape (2+2 with no shoulders).

It's in Italian, but you don't miss anything by not reading it. It doesn't update about status any more, it just tells uninteresting stories about workers and other works in the territory.
Sadly, it seems that completion percentages went back since the last update - more works to do. I'm not putting my money on a 2015 opening date.

This bridge on SS121 Palermo - Agrigento was opened 10 days ago:

Last 23rd December a 1km stretch of SS 121 "Palermo-Agrigento", in Sicily, was opened. It is a 1+1 new road on a difficult mountain stretch.
By 1st January, viaduct Scorciavacche 2 was already in these conditions:
