Brīvības gatve ir horrible. The western side of Riga in general has better pavement quality on roads. For example, on my daily commute from western side of Riga to the city center there are practicly no roads with uneven pavement, apart from my yard.
There's a big diffrence on the eastern side (correct me if I'm wrong), but always when I have to take a drive to the other side of city I see some terrible main streets.

I see that many cities have less advanced eastern part. Look at Tallinn, Warsaw, remote corners of Vilnius, etc.

E. g. In Kaunas, western suburb Šilainiai is relatively new (but still built in communist times) and recent repavements made that suburb the first suburb without uneven streets (and the most attractive one), while in eastern part: Dainava, Palemonas are still suburbs that looks like places from Third World. Maybe situation will change in next few or ten years.

A couple of days ago on Salu bridge I saw a Porsche Panamera with California plates

Which got me wondering: how (and why) the heck did they get the car all the way from the Pacific coast to Latvia?

Map of road projects to be realised next year with state budget funding, that's mostly local roads.

In 2016 the budget for roads will be 339 million EUR, that is 35 million EUR more than this year.

As for Ķekava bypass, the financial-economnic evaluation of the project will be finished very soon and procurement for enviormental plan has been announced.

This year the biggest projects were A9 (38 million EUR) and A11 (15,1 million EUR). In 2016 the biggest projects will be carried out on A3 (18,15 million EUR).

Some sections of A2 were reconstructed this year, three of the projects are still U/C and one of them will be continued in to 2016. Not sure about any new sections next year tho.

EDIT: We should see two new projects start on A2 in 2016.
