“After that, a new bridge will be built on the site, but this will bring only partial traffic restrictions,” said Jan Mikulička, a spokesman for the Liberec Region. Detour routes will be marked.
Detour route to the end of the special-purpose road Prague – Turnov: exit Exit 67, traffic will be led along the entry and exit branch D10-1. Bypass route to the D10 closure in the direction of Turnov – Prague: On road III / 27911 in the direction of the village Pěnčín, road III / 2799 in the direction of Svijanský Újezd, road II / 279 in the direction of Svijany and Exit 67.
“We would like to ask the drivers to be patient on the road at the weekend, fortunately the detours are not long. Without a complete closure, we would not be able to demolish the bridge, which has been in poor technical condition for a long time, “said Jan Sviták, the statutory deputy governor for the Ministry of Transport.
The complete closure of the road to Prague will be followed by a partial restriction, which will end at five o’clock in the morning on Monday 30 May. This will be followed by the construction of the outermost pillars of the bridge, which will bring traffic in the 2 + 2 mode – one lane of the motorway will be unrestricted, in the other there will be two temporary lanes with the curb closed. This regime will last until August 6 this year.
From August 7, the construction of the inner pillar of the bridge will begin, which will end on September 4. From these data, the traffic on the mentioned section D10 will be conducted according to how the construction works will develop and how they will continue to produce and deliver reinforced concrete bridge girders.
“From September 4, the traffic will be conducted according to how the construction work will develop and how the production and deliveries of the reinforced concrete bridge deck beams will continue,” added Sviták.
