There is a mistake made by creaator of article - should be A6 instead of A5 (in section Krustojošie ceļi).

btw if there should be something edited in my articles please let me know.

At first I would like to thank you - really great job, as Burtinsh said.
I will check these articles for mistakes a bit later and if there are some, I will mention them.
I can even try to get some pictures...
What do you mean by saying "5-13"? Don't you think that A14 and A15 are main roads?

Is this one made by you?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A1_road_%28Latvia%29.

EDIT:

I took a quick look at these articles and found some mistakes.

1)For correct length of roads you should look at "MK noteikumi nr.1104". You don't have great mistakes but somewhere road lengths differ a bit (if you want to be very correct).
2)Somewhere TEN-T was mentioned but mostly not. Here you will find information about TEN-T network: http://www.lvceli.lv/LV/?i=1022

A1) map is wrong. A1 starts not in Riga, but from A2/A4 interchange.
"was also widened from 1 lane to 1.5 lanes" - I'm not sure that it should be written this way. 2*1,5=3 lanes... It is still 2 lanes but with wide shoulders (cross section NP14).
A2) I guess that there will be no construction to expressway in 2011. PPP project has been cancelled and I don't see any way to do such great work.
A4) Some mistakes with AADT. At first, AADT is much higher that you mentioned (6500). Official information can be found here:
http://www.lvceli.lv/LV/PC/PageImages/Original/1335.jpg
About trucks:
http://www.lvceli.lv/LV/Download/?t=pagefile&i=257
They make 20-26% of AADT. It's hard to say that it's most of the traffic...
A5) Wrong picture - it's from A4
A5 has got 2+2 lane stretch from A5/A9 interchange till the end (it's from about 34,6 to 40,9 km).

I quickly looked at my picture collection and chose some of them for you:

http://www.failiem.lv/list.php?i=xjnroh

Some of them need little editing. Sad, but I didn't find A6, A8 and A11. I'm almost sure that I had them but it's hard to say, where are they now.
I guess that you can find A8 and A6 easy in Google Picture Finder.

1) and 2) Will be corrected
The A1 map is not mine, it was there already before i started editing the articles, but i might make maps for all roads, after i finish writing all articles.
SM site says that it could still start in 2011 if the economic situation stabilazes and if credit rating of Latvia stabilazes. So as i understand there is still hope.
for AADT i used real time traffic data from last month, so your data might be abit outdated .About A5 picture, i know, i just copied A4's infobox and edited everything, when i upload a image of A5 i will ofcourse change it.
And yeah i just remembered about the A5 2x2 part, dont know how i could of forgotten it, because i use it very frequently.
And big thanks about he pictures, i will take a look and upload the best ones.

I'd better throw that map away. If there is no-one right then it's better without it (but it's only my opinion).
"SM site says that it could still start in 2011 if the economic situation stabilazes and if credit rating of Latvia stabilazes. So as i understand there is still hope" - I wouldn't count on that. I don't believe that economic is gonna rise that fast. But if MoT says that then probably you can leave that text.
I have seen unofficial data about AADT of 2010. Probably some additional calculations may be done but I'm almost sure that there will be no major changes on A4 (comparing to AADT of 2009).
Real time data may vary depending on, for example, weather. Now there is snow and more drivers stay at home and it may impact AADT.

Great news!

Reconstruction of A2 from Riga to Sigulda might not start next year, tender procedure ended without results. Ministry of Transport decided to discontinue the tender.

Quote:
Valsts un privātās partnerības (VPP) pirmā atklātā konkursa pieteikumu atvēršanas procedūra autoceļa A2 posma Rīgas apvedceļš–Sēnīte rekonstrukcijai beidzās bez rezultātiem un Satiksmes ministrija ir pieņēmusi lēmumu konkursu neturpināt, ņemot vērā, ka VPP finansēšanas modelis prasa palielināt valsts parādsaistības. Tas nozīmē, ka autoceļa A2 segas rekonstrukcijai vai seguma atjaunošanai finansējums pagaidām nav pieejams un darbi šajā autoceļu posmā plānoti netiek.

And sorry, about the dirty windows .
