The Voivode of Lublin issued a permit for the implementation of a road investment for the expansion of an approximately 14-kilometer section of national road No. 74 between Hrubieszów and the border crossing in Zosin. We plan to announce a tender to select a contractor this year.
We will adapt a 13.7 km long section to the standards of a main express road class. The road will be widened and both lanes will be 3.5 meters wide. A new surface will be laid, and its structure will be reinforced and adapted to carry a load of 11.5 t/axle – informs the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways.
Crossroads will also be rebuilt and a roundabout will be built at the junction of DK74 with the district road leading towards Horodło. There will also be pedestrian and bicycle routes, safe and illuminated pedestrian crossings and bus bays.
Changes to DK74
This is another investment carried out on the route between the S19 expressway in Janów Lubelski, the planned S17 near Zamość, and the border crossing in Zosin.
Currently, the construction of the Dzwola bypass is underway along with the expansion of DK74 from the end of the future Janów Lubelski bypass to Frampol (12 km in total). Preparatory works related to the expansion of DK74 between Gorajec and Szczebrzeszyn have also begun.
“In recent years, we built the Frampol and Hrubieszów bypasses, and we also rebuilt the route between Frampol and Gorajec and several sections east of Zamość. In the first quarter of this year, we will submit an application to the Lublin Voivode for issuing a ZRID decision for the construction of the Gorajec bypass. The bypasses of Janów Lubelski, Szczebrzeszyn and Zamość (approx. 33 km in total) are at the preparation stage. In total, over 60 km of new or modernized sections of national road No. 74 will be built between Janów Lubelski and Zamość. We also plan to further expand DK74 from Zamość to Zosin with a total length of approx. 37 km,” we read in the release.
