Closure of the federal highway B 327 (Hunsrückhöhenstrasse)
Frankfurt-Hahn, 04/05/2005 – Following a speedy decision by the Higher Administrative Court in Koblenz on 27th April, Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn GmbH is now able to proceed with its project to extend the runway at the expanded airport. As the first task, the building schedule provides for the removal of the topsoil, creating an embankment, and excavation work.
For this reason, federal highway B 327 (Hunsrückhöhenstrasse) will be closed to public traffic between the Raversbeuren and Lötzbeuren junctions beginning Tuesday 17th May 2005.
Long-distance traffic in the greater area will be diverted from Kappel via federal highway B 421 and from Kirchberg via federal highway B 50. The appropriate diversion route (see diagram), including diversions for regional traffic, will be signposted well in advance.
In conjunction with the closure of the B 327, country road L 194 through Bärenbach will also be closed to heavy traffic. In addition, the previous access to the airport via the Trier Gate will be unavailable beginning 30th May 2005.
Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn GmbH expects to be able to complete the construction work by the middle of 2006 when federal highway B 327 (Hunsrückhöhenstrasse) will be reopened to traffic.
