Currenty it is planned to start works no earlier than in 2017. Keep in mind that new A12/E22 stretch is still under construction.

K. Valdemāra/Daugavgrīvas street junction was opened yesterday. After reconstruction traffic organization is significantly improved, pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure is also improved and the enviorment is also more structured. Cost of the project was 21 million Lats = ~30 million Euro.

What is the difference between the green and the yellow sections?

It is annoying that years after the Schengen Area open borders took effect in Latvia, they still show the old border crossing points on new maps. There is an absolute right to cross anywhere along internal Schengen borders (except private property, military bases, etc.).

Thanks!

I see it was mostly gravel. How many kilometers per year are being upgraded from gravel to asphalt?
