A consortium of PRKiI Trakcja and Mostostal Warszawa has signed a contract for construction of an S61 dual carriageway section between the Elk Poludnie to and Wysokie junctions.

The work, costing around €159 million, is scheduled for completion in June 2021.

The S61 expressway will, when finished, run south from the Polish-Lithuanian border near Budzisko where it will connect with Lithuania’s A5 and intersect with the S8 near Ostrów Mazowiecka. It will also be part of the Via Baltica connecting the Baltic region’s states.
