Riga City Council Traffic Department informed that on Saturday, 14. May, vehicle traffic will be open to newly built Slavic and transmission platform to Lubānas street.
Platform, currently used for access between the Slavic transferred to Lubānas Street will be closed to carry out further work needs to change the traffic flow in the opposite direction. Driving over Slavic transmits the rotation of the circle and will remain the same as before.


In addition will be an exit from the dock to the assembly, the second level Piedrujas street direction. It will move from the left bank of the Daugava, the Coast and the streets of Moscow on the street without calling Piedrujas Slavic rotating in a circle without passing through Ilūkstes street, which will considerably facilitate the traffic flow Lubanas Katlakalna towards the street.

Alternative highway from Ludza to Terehova border. First stage (Nirza-Ploski) was opened in 2007 (see pictures here) and the 2nd stage is under construction now (pictures from the site). After opening the whole route is going to be 32,7 km long and shorter by 1,3 km than A12.

I think they could do a 100kmh on parts of A2 too, or on A12 between Jekabpils and Rēzekne.
Today i drove on A5 nera Jaunmārupe and it looks like the road is going to be widened to 1.5 lanes, also heard rumors that viaduct to Jaunmarupe is going to be demolished and rounadbout is going to be built there, can anyone vonfirm that?

Hmm, that doesn't make any sense and it would be absolute waste of money. Current plans about Rigas bypass upgrade to motorway standarts show this junction existing on the same place with only access road crossings rebuilt into roundabouts. Here's a preview:


I'm not sure, but if they are doing a capital reconstruction of that road they should also rebuild that junction to newest standarts judging by other projects realized in earlier years.

I just rode through Latvia this week when going to Palanga. Unfortunately, it was by bus so I couldn't take photos. What I did notice is that A8 between Jelgava and the Lithuanian border is in a terrible state. It should be repaved or reconstructed ASAP. Are there any plans for it?

A8 between Jelgava and Lithuanian border, is one of the most unused A roads in Latvia, so i dont think its going to be even repaved in near future.
