Construction work on the A8 is likely to spoil the weekend for some drivers.

The Alb descent is blocked - long waiting times are inevitable.

Hohenstadt – The so-called Albabstieg on the A8 has been closed since Thursday evening, August 11th.

The section towards Stuttgart is the most important connection between Munich and Stuttgart.

Traffic will be at a standstill here until 5 a.m. on Monday, August 15.

A8 blocked in Bavaria: Drivers need patience

The A8 near Merklingen (Alb-Donau-Kreis) will be closed just in time for the weekend.

Motorists from Bavaria should therefore bring a good portion of patience with them on the way to Stuttgart or Karlsruhe.

According to the Southwest branch of Autobahn GmbH, the reason for the full closure is the narrow lane width.

Therefore, the section on the Drackensteiner Hang will be completely closed for four kilometers between Merklingen and Mühlhausen.

32,000 square meters of road surface are to be renewed over the weekend.

A8 closed towards Stuttgart: detour at Ulm

Of course there will be detours.

There is the possibility of driving via the Ulm-Elchingen motorway junction onto the A7 and then continuing on the A6 in the north of Bavaria in the direction of your destination.

It is also recommended to use federal roads 10 and 313 from the Ulm-West junction.

In this context, Autobahn GmbH also makes a request to road users: they should stick to the diversions so as not to burden local residents on the secondary roads.
