Traffic disruptions in Bonn and the region : Lanes on the A565 will be closed on Saturday

If you are traveling on the autobahns surrounding Bonn, the A3, A562, A555 or A59, or in inner-city traffic with a private car or on a tram - there is a lot of construction going on in and around Bonn this summer, resulting in disruptions and delays. Here is a look at some of the construction zones and closures - there are many.

Lane closings on the A565

NRW is preparing for the construction of noise barriers on the A565 in the area of the Bonn-Poppelsdorf exit on Saturday, 20 June. In both directions, only one lane will be available between the Poppelsdorf and Lengsdorf exits from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Congestion between Lohmar and Bonn/Siegburg interchange

From Monday, 22 June to Friday, 26 June, and from Monday, 29 June to Friday, 3 July, the A3 in the direction of Frankfurt between the Lohmar exit and the Bonn/Siegburg motorway will have fewer lanes from 7 a.m. to 12 noon. Only two of three lanes will be available at that time. But all three lanes will probably be open for the entire weekend from 12 noon on Friday, 26 June because of the start of summer holidays.

Canal work in Dransdorf

Construction work on the canal on Alfterer Strasse is already underway. According to the civil engineering office of the city of Bonn, a new shaft structure will be built at Alfterer Strasse/Messdorfer Strasse on 29 June. The work means you can expect partial closures and obstructions along the road but the construction site can be passed.

Traffic is controlled by a construction site traffic light in the area of the roundabout (Siemensstrasse, Grootestrasse, Messdorfer Strasse) and the Alfterer Strasse. Detours are indicated, but motorists can expect longer waiting times. Motorists should avoid the area if at all possible. Work is expected to continue through the end of September if no delays are experienced.

Restricted bus and rail traffic on Kölnstrasse

SWB Bus and Bahn (Bus and Rail) is renewing the track at the corner of Kölnstrasse and Wilhelmplatz from Friday, 26 June, 3:30 a.m., to Monday, 29 June. During this time, Kölnstrasse cannot be used by buses or trams between the construction site and Chlodwigplatz. Alternate tram service will bypass Kölnstrasse via Sandkaule, Welschnonnenstrasse, Römerstrasse and Augustusring to Graurheindorfer Strasse in both directions. The trams of line 61 coming from Dottendorf will be diverted from the Stadthaus stop to Beuel station and from there back to Dottendorf.

Between Bertha-von-Suttner-Platz and Kopenhagener Strasse there is a replacement bus service. At the times mentioned in the timetable, line 65 only runs between Beuel Station, and Ramersdorf and Bonn Central Station. The bus stops LVR-Klinik and Chlodwigplatz will be dropped. Passengers can alternatively use Husarenstrasse or Nordstrasse. The Augustusring stop only serves the tram replacement service in the direction of the city center.

Work between Bonn Central Station and Quiriniusplatz

From Tuesday, 30 June, 3:30 a.m., to Sunday, 26 July, canal and track construction work will be carried out between Bonn Central Station and Quirinusplatz.

During this time period, line 62 coming from Oberkassel Süd/Römlinghoven ends at Bonn Central Station in the underground on track U 3 and returns from there. Line 61 coming from Auerberg ends at the Central Station and returns from there. Between the stops Hauptbahnhof and Quirinusplatz there is a replacement bus service.

City of Bonn restores canal in Bonner Talweg

In the period from 30 June to 26 July, the city of Bonn is having the canal in the Bonner Talweg renewed. According to a statement by the City of Bonn, this will affect the sections between Goethestrasse and Königsstrasse. From the beginning of August until mid-September, the sewer renewal will then follow in the area between Königstrasse and Poppelsdorfer Allee.

The city advises that the construction work is likely to lead to traffic obstructions. From June 30 to July 26, the road between Dottendorf and Poppelsdorfer Allee will be completely closed to rail traffic.

During this time period, line 62 ends at the station "Bonn Hauptbahnhof" in the underground on track U3 and returns to Oberkassel Süd/Römlinghoven from there. Line 61 also ends at the stop "Hauptbahnhof" and goes from there back to Auerberg.

Between the stops "Hauptbahnhof" and "Quirinusplatz" there will be a rail replacement service. Since the Hausdorffstrasse can only be used by replacement rail traffic to a limited extent from July 20 to 26, it will bypass Hausdorffstrasse between Reuterstrasse and Eduard-Otto-Strasse via the Bonner Talweg in the direction of Dottendorf.

A construction site traffic signal is to be installed at the intersection Bonner Talweg/Weberstraße. In the area of the remaining sewer shafts, however, it will be possible to drive past. According to official information, renewal of the 690-meter-long canal should be completed by mid-September.
