This weekend sees A81 temporary closure

The A 81 will be completely closed between Böblingen and Sindelfingen from October 1st to 3rd. From 10 p.m. on Friday. Initially only the section between the Hulb and Böblingen/Sindelfingen junctions will be affected. From Saturday evening until Sunday evening, the closure will be extended to the Sindelfingen-Ost junction.

A bridge will be demolished in the course of the highway expansion between Böblingen and Sindelfingen – with clearly noticeable consequences for many thousands of motorists in the Stuttgart region. This is because the A 81 – one of the busiest roads in Germany – will have to be completely closed to cars in both directions from Friday evening (from 10 p.m.) until at least Sunday morning due to the construction work. Specifically, the section between the Böblingen-Hulb and Sindelfingen-Ost junctions is affected.  The autobahn will be closed more often in the coming months.   

On Saturday, cars will be diverted mainly via Böblingen Hulb and Flugfeld. From Saturday evening, traffic will be routed via the B 464, past the Daimler site and through Sindelfingen city center. 

The bridge to Dagersheim is the first of eleven overpasses and underpasses on the A 81 that will be demolished and rebuilt over the next five years. (Stuttgarter Nachrichten, Sep 29)
