This was stated by the Directorate of Roads and Highways (ŘSD) when asked by Zdopravy.cz. “During the repair, temporary traffic lanes will be used on the D1 highway in the 3+3 mode,” said Martin Buček, spokesman for the ŘSD. Traffic will be more significantly restricted on days when road workers will move the restrictive markings.
According to current plans, the autumn phase of the work will last until the last weekend of November. The builders will work, for example, on the temporary crossing of the central dividing strip, the anti-noise walls at the Božkov rest area or on the bridge (item no. D1-018).

“Due to the execution of works under this bridge, when the foundation of the newly supplemented substructure of the bridge should be started, due to limited spatial possibilities, the complete closure of road III/1016 between Kunice and Strančice will be necessary, which is planned from Sunday 2 October to Sunday 26 November,” added Buček.
The work will continue in the spring, the total repair time should be 300 days. The contract was won by Eurovia with a price of 388 million crowns, when the ŘSD assumption was 402 million.
