Opatów bypass along the S74 expressway and national road No. 9
On June 17 a consortium of Mostostal Warszawa and Acciona Construcción has signed a contract with the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways for the design and construction of the Opatów bypass along the S74 expressway and national road No. 9. The gross contract value is PLN 403.7 million.
The bypass will run on the south-west side of Opatów, mostly along the new course. It will consist of a section of the GP-class dual carriageway (main accelerated traffic) with a length of approx. 5.1 km and a section of the two-way expressway S74 with a length of approx. 6.7 km. As part of the investment, two new junctions will be built: Opatów (on S74), Opatów I (on DK9), as well as engineering structures (flyovers, viaducts, bridges, animal crossings and culverts). It is planned to build access roads, environmental protection devices, including acoustic screens, infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists, lighting and drainage, and road safety devices.
The Opatów bypass will run through the communes of Opatów, Lipnik and Sadowie. The new road will free the city from transit traffic, improve the quality of life of its inhabitants as well as the safety and comfort of travelers. The bypass will constitute an important section of the planned S74 expressway, which will connect the Łódzkie, Świętokrzyskie and Podkarpackie voivodeships in the future.
