Why are people ON the motorway? I think it's not closed for "normal" traffic, is it?

It is the 'Dragoon Ride', a convoy of tens of US vehicles coming back from training in Estonia. They passed the Baltic States and Poland, and now the Czech Republic, back to their base in Germany to show the US presence in the region, securing the NATO-allies against Russia.

No it is not. There was a huge public discussion about this ride in CZ in the last two weeks, and many people wanted to show their support. A small minority was protesting. Since the whole thing has support of the Czech government I guess the police turned a blind eye. Together with the military police they helped to organize the traffic a bit.

ummm Keep in mind that the Czech government said that anyone caught throwing eggs or tomatoes at the convoy would be subject to 3 years imprisonment. Few people were happy but there were some serious threats made against the populace. Talk about propaganda...No idea how they managed to get a photo with a 100 or so people seemingly accepting the incursion without giving them Hitler salutes and throwing shit at them.

Alesmarv:

Most people here in the Czech republic are actually happy to be part of NATO. The memory of the Warsaw Pact invasion 1968 is still in living memory. NATO presence guarantees that Russia keeps its fingers away (something they haven't done to Ukraine and Georgia... ). So a majority of people here are actually happy for getting protection even though a few always will protest. I know plenty of people who went out to the roads to watch the convoy and cheer.

The first class road I-11

The first class road I-11 is the longest first class road in the Czech Republic (357,74 km). It goes in the west - east direction, connecting Mosty u Jablůnkova (SK border), Ostrava, Opava, Šumperk, Hradec Králové, Poděbrady. The D11 has replaced I-11 between Poděbrady and Praha.



Rather than a long distance transit route the I-11 has a regional transit route importance. In the north eastern of the country has I-11 become also important for the international traffic between Poland and Slovakia and it has become major south-west - north-east artery of the region in the so called Silesian cross.



Therefore it is getting a major upgrade to 2x2 separated limited access between Jablůnkov-Bystřice and Ostrava and between Ostrava and Opava. The road was already rebuild to a higher (no level crossing, limited access) standard between Jablůnkov-Bystřice, SK border.



At the moment those sections are under construction:
(T60)I11: Ostrava-Krasne Pole – Ostrava-Poruba 6.7km (November 2012 to May 2015) – projectmap
(T53)I11: Mokre Lazce – Ostrava-Krasne Pole 9.8km (January 2009 to August 2015) – projectmap
(T56)I11: Nebory – Oldrichovice 4.9km (August 2014 to September 2017) – projectmap
(T57)I11: Oldrichovice – south of Bystrice 6.2km (August 2014 to February 2018) – projectmap

Further on the regional connection goes on between Nebory and R48 in Třanovice and is planned as I-68. Also 2x2 grade separated. Project (T55 on the map above)
The following section project (T82 on the map) has not yet fixed routing, but it is planned as I-11 between Třanovice and Havířov. The numbering will have yet to be adjusted to be consistent I guess.

There are also several bypasses planned further on the regional I-11 axis, in Opava, and in Bruntal.
Opava bypass project T52 T74
Bruntal bypass project

Advancements on the sections currently under construction:
(T60)I11: Ostrava-Krasne Pole – Ostrava-Poruba 6.7km (November 2012 to May 2015) – projectmap

Because there is not any fence along the motorway.

Thanks . The pics seem to be up-to-date. I don't think, this section will be opened in May 2015........

The project page (December 2014 version) still claims May 2015.

Is there another confirmation that this stretch of I/11 will open in May 2015

If the photos posted by Surel are recent, then it is obviously not possible for this section of I-11 to open in May 2015.
