Attention! Changing Driving Conditions.
Probably until the end of 2015, the Kalk tunnel on the B55a between the Zoobrücke and the motorway junction Köln-Ost is being completely renovated. Throughout the entire construction phase the tunnel will only have two lanes open to traffic in each direction instead of the usual three. This will lead to traffic restrictions in the vicinity of our congress centers.
