In mid-March, the last stage of the reconstruction of the I / 35 road in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm in the Vsetínsko region will begin. It will last a maximum of eight weeks. The first two stages, when they controlled the operation of the traffic light, were completed by the builders last year. This time, the passage through the repaired section will be prohibited from transit traffic over 7.5 tons, trucks will use the detour, according Petra Graclíková, a spokeswoman for the Rožnov town hall.

The investor of the construction is the Directorate of Roads and Motorways of the Czech Republic (ŘSD), costs including VAT will exceed CZK 51.5 million. The repair of the road surface on the Rožnov embankment of Dukelské hrdiny, which is part of the I / 35 road, concerns the section from the U Janíka intersection for the city library. Work is scheduled to begin on March 15 after the winter break.

Due to the fact that the last section is located very close to the traffic light at Janík, according to Deputy Mayor Jan Kučera (Nezávislí Rožnováci), the traffic in the repaired section will not be controlled by traffic lights. "The aim is to prevent the formation of columns that could affect the passage of the main intersection in all directions. The direction from Valašské Meziříčí to Dolní Bečva will run continuously without restrictions, so traffic will be one-way. From the opposite direction traffic will be via a detour," said Kučera.

Another novelty is the ban on passing through the repaired section of transit traffic over 7.5 tons. The detour for these vehicles will lead through Frenštát pod Radhoštěm, Příbor, Nový Jičín, Valašské Meziříčí and Zubří. "The detour route from Dolní Bečva will be led through Bezručová Street, Hradišťko Street and May 5 Street for all traffic, including the bus route. In the direction from Valašské Meziříčí, there will then be a ban on turning on Bezručovova Street," said Petr Kubáček from the PORR construction company. Road I / 35 is one of the main routes from the Zlín Region to Slovakia.
