A warm welcome, petroleja29! Quite strange to hear that, though it could be right, it does seem like that IMO!

^ Not bad, it's a long time Jurmala highway (2x3!) wasn't shown here!

Unfortunately in next year there will be almost dead silence in road construction. Currently they just are completing agreements concluded in "fat years". OK, Riga - Moscow direction will have some serious construction activities next year.

Btw, in September, E22 highway section Koknese-Viskāļi construction started, and, if I'm not mistaken, construction started on the 2nd stage of a new highway Ludza-Terehova.

I found a complete visualization of Riga bypass - Sigulda (Sēnīte) project. One of the most probable highway section to be totally improved and repaved in the coming years! As well, even though it still wouldn't be a motorway, it will definately become an expressway! Here you go:

As I mentioned several times in this thread, this part of A2 will be an expressway with a 110 km/h speed limit.
