B303: free commuter traffic from tuesday onwards

After four and a half months, the full closure of federal highway 303 near oberelldorf (town of seblach, coburg district) was lifted again on monday morning. Since the 31st. July the federal highway was closed, the traffic had to drive wide and partly narrow detour routes. The closure was necessary because the oberelldorf through road was being widened. Due to the confined space there, it was not possible to drive traffic past the construction site in a single lane.
However, the reopening does not represent an end to the construction work on the federal highway. Next year, work will begin on the extension between oberelldorf and the turnoff to muggenbach. The road will be relocated by a few meters and a passing lane will be added (direction coburg). At the end of 2018, the eight-million-euro project should be completed, and there will be no prolonged closures of the federal highway during this construction phase.
