The westbound lane on the Ring Road on Hellisheiði heath, which connects the capital region to South Iceland, will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, between 9:00 and 14:00 due to road work. Road crews will be repairing the road between the town of Hveragerði in South Iceland and Hellisheiði power plant. Traffic will be diverted south of the heath. Traffic on the eastbound lane, from Reykjavík to South Iceland, is unaffected.

Tomorrow afternoon, beginning at 14:00 repairs on a second stretch of the Ring Road leading from Reykjavík to South Iceland will likely cause delays.

The Icelandic Road and Coastal Authority urges drivers to respect speed limitations and traffic instructions, and slow down while they pass road crews.
