The plan has been accepted, indeed, but it doesn't include Ķekava bypass and there is no warranty that construction might start even in 2017. This project might have a go only if it is financed by a private investor (PPP project).
2014-2020 investment plan is available here: http://kartes.lvceli.lv/files/Projek...kts_150513.pdf

A8/E77 Update on Jelgava/Ozolnieki bypass (map) - 11/08/2013

1.


2. Reconstruction of bridge over river Vircava.


3. Next one up is bridge over mighty river Lielupe.


4. I guess the left side will open soon, they've been working on it since April.


5. I haven't driven here maybe 2 weeks or so, seeing this sight after the bridge for me was like: 'WTF happened here?'


6. On overpass over P93 to Iecava.


7. At junction with a local road to Brankas and Jelgava North.


8. Finally fresh tarmac!


9. Approaching crossing with a local road.

Wow, a gravel section on a national trunk road. I know it's temporary, but you generally don't see this in western Europe. Nice report

Thanks. AFAIK there is a temporary gravel section even on A7 between Riga and Ķekava, which has one of the highest AADT records. I can't pull my finger why roadworks are done such way.

Probably cost. In most countries, a temporary asphalt lane would be constructed while the road is undergoing renovation. Here is a current example from Poland. This whole road with the double yellow centre-line is temporary while construction is underway on a parallel permanent road.

It's possible. Now there aren't much objects to be built and everyone wishes to win the tender. It's possible with a lower price.

That temporary line is nice, that's for sure but it would increase the price. By the way, there is another reason for working not that way. At least in Latvia private land properties is a very painful issue.

Is Viskāļi-Koknsese stretch opened? And are there road signs installed?

I have several pictures somewhere but you should try it yourself - it's such a nice road.
Actually almost all road is available for traffic except the very end - connection between two roundabouts. Now you have to use the existing P79 through Koknese.
Some minor road works haven't been finished (signs or markings) and it seems like junctions aren't ready yet.

Right now not many drivers know about this road and it's a spooky feeling driving on a such brand new road without any significant traffic (sometimes it's maybe a car or two in a 10 or 20 km section).
