Reykjanesbraut closed due to asphalt laying

Due to paving work, Reykjanesbraut will be closed from Grindavíkurvegur towards Reykjavík from 20:00 on Wednesday 16th of November until 20:00 on Thursday 17th of November. Reykjanesbraut will be open for traffic from Reykjavik to the airport throughout the construction period.

Reykjanesbraut is to be paved over a 2.7 km section by the smelter in Straumsvík.

There will be a detour via Grindavíkurvegur (43), Suðurstrandarvegur (427) and Krýsuvíkurvegur (42) for those on their way to the capital. Since the route is longer, drivers must add about 40 more minutes to their travel time to Reykjavík. There could also be some traffic delays and drivers are asked to drive carefully and show consideration.

The speed on Krýsuvíkurvegur will be reduced to 50 km/h in several places.

Closure stations at Straumsvík and the intersection at Grindavíkurvegur will be manned. This is done to increase safety and to respond if an emergency vehicle needs to be let through.
