Course of the road
Bundesautobahn 395 (abbreviation: BAB 395 ) - short form: Autobahn 395 (abbreviation: A 395 ) - also known as the "Harz Highway" - was the name of a motorway between January 1, 1975 and December 31, 2018, from Braunschweig to Bad Harzburg and since October 2nd, 2001 to Goslar - Vienenburg . On January 1, 2019, it was incorporated into federal motorways 36 and 369 .
The A 395 was based on the federal highway 4 between Braunschweig and Bad Harzburg. It was the subject of a four-lane expansion and from the 1960s, especially in Bad Harzburg, political discussions regarding its implementation. The section between the Vienenburg and Vienenburg-Süd exits was the oldest and was opened in November 1972.
On January 1, 1975, the section near Vienenburg was upgraded to the A 395. In the meantime, the designation A 369 was up for discussion, but this was only awarded in 2019 for a section of this motorway. The sections between Braunschweig and the Wolfenbüttel-Nord exit first had to be adapted to the motorway standard and could therefore only be opened later. After this happened until 1984, the remaining sections were completed by the end of 1994 under the designation A 395 and thus the motorway from Braunschweig to Bad Harzburg was continuous. After reunification, the Osterwieck exit near Vienenburg was also re-established to initially improve the connection to the east.
In 1999, work began on an eastward expansion of the federal highway 6 to the south to Saxony-Anhalt . As a result, the Vienenburg motorway triangle was opened in 2001 and the end of the motorway moved here on October 2, 2001. The section between the motorway triangle and AS Westerode was added to Bundesstraße 6 and became the direct predecessor of today's BAB 369.
On July 21, 2017, it was announced that on January 1, 2019, the previous A 395 will merge into the future federal motorway 36 . The stepped section south of the Vienenburg triangle will also be given the old name Bundesautobahn 369 . In the course of the rededication, the signage was replaced from December 18, 2018.
The rededication and the end of the A 395 took place officially on January 1, 2019.
