That's not really a surprise, since they are the main roads in Lithuania and Latvia. Great report, btw

Quite big reconstruction of a junction just before Klaipėda started few months ago. It's a connection of A1 motorway, A13 dual-carriageway and road which enters Klaipėda city and a local road from south direction. Actually this is a part of Klaipėda bypass.
Before a junction looked like this:

Just gigantic roundabout. It is very problematic and traffic flow is very slow. During summer on sundays, there are big traffic jams, because a lot of people are comming back home from towns near sea.

A project of new junction. They will make 3 levels junction


Some photos of constrction:

They already have one 3-level junction in Vilnius (southern bypass) where that roundabout is:

This viaduct project near Klaipėda will be from few stages. They plan to finish first stage - bridge from A1 road to Klaipėda on November of 2010

And about 3 levels crossing in Lithuania.
It will be the 3rd 3 levels junction. First was this junction of A1 and western Kaunas Bypass


The second is as RipleyLV mentioned on southern bypass of Vilnius

According to wikipedia there will be 3 stages.
Now some pics.
A scheme, where western bypass will be


All following photos (c) JlL from ************/forumas

Preparation works:


Here will be the end/begining of Vilnius western bypass and a 3 level junction (scheme was posted before by user "whatever..."). Existing junction will be converted from 2 levels to 3 levels.


Construction works







Again some preparation



And actually it's a big project because they also want to connect this viaduct to a recently built southern bypass of Vilnius. So they will upgrade a bridge before a beginning of southern bypass. Bridge will be widened, some extra lanes will be added to improve traffic flow on bridge

And also reconstructing A14 road near Vilnius to dual-carriageway also goes nicely. Just a traffic jam in fact of roadworks and long weekend wasn't nice
