The westbound Ring Road on Hellisheiði heath, which separates Reykjavík and South Iceland, will be closed today Thursday due to road work and repairs. The road is expected to open again at 19:00 (7 pm) tonight. Road work is expected to continue until midnight, during which time drivers should expect delays and slower traffic.

The Ring Road is closed at the western roundabout in Hveragerði town in South Iceland, where westbound traffic is rerouted to Þrengslin road (road 39). Drivers are asked to slow down, show patience and respect instructions and road signs.
