the Hohenwutzen / Osinów Dolny border crossing
The national highway 158 (abbreviation: B 158 ) is a federal road in Berlin and Brandenburg . It leads from the B 1 / B 5 in Berlin-Biesdorf via Ahrensfelde , Werneuchen through the Barnim via Bad Freienwalde to Angermünde .
Today's federal highway 158 was built as one of the first highways in the province of Brandenburg at the beginning of the 19th century. The art route from Berlin to Werneuchen was completed in 1806, its continuation to Bad Freienwalde was completed in 1816 by French prisoners of war .
In 1903 the Saldern Bridge, which crossed the Oder near Hohenwutzen , was built. It replaced a chain ferry and was also used by the Freienwalde – Zehden railway between 1930 and 1945 before it was destroyed in the last days of the Second World War.
Previous routes and names
In the second numbering around 1937, the numbers 158 to 165 were assigned to the Reichsstraßen in Hinterpommern . The National Highway 158 was one of the longest imperial roads in northeastern Germany and led by Berlin-Weissensee way to Lauenburg in Pomerania . The road conditions between Berlin and Bad Freienwalde were classified as good in 1938, while the eastern road sections were classified as mediocre. In the course of the motorway construction, Blumberg was given a bypass in 1936.
In the GDR , trunk road 158 ended in Hohenwutzen and was called F 158. In the 1990s, the beginning of the connection, now known as Bundesstrasse 158 , was moved from Bundesstrasse 2 in Berlin-Weißensee to B 1 / B 5 in Berlin-Marzahn , in order to guide the traffic flows over the better developed Märkische Allee .
The Oder bridge near Hohenwutzen was blown up in April 1945 when the German Wehrmacht withdrew. Between 1952 and 1957 a new bridge over the Oder was built, which was only opened to German-Polish border traffic in 1993.
Ahrensfelde bypass / B 158n
Since the 1980s there have been considerations to lead the B 158 around the village of Ahrensfelde by means of a bypass. Due to the high traffic load in the rush hour, there are daily traffic jams within the local area Ahrensfelde, up to the motorway connection to the A 10 in the direction of Berlin on the Märkische Allee in the direction of Ahrensfelde. Different variants were discussed, but these were ruled out either for reasons of cost, traffic benefits or the burdens on residents.
A plan approval procedure was started in 2011 , during which variants were discussed. The preferred variant provides for a four-lane street that runs from Märkische Allee (at the level of the Ahrensfelde S-Bahn station ) over Klandorfer Straße along the state border between Berlin and Brandenburg, crosses Feldstraße and state roads L 311 and L 339 east of Ahrensfelde, meets the old B 158 again at the level of the Blumberg industrial estate and is led to the Hohenschönhausen junction using the old B 158. In the Klandorfer Straße section, the B 158n is to be routed in a 150 meter long trough structure with a lid. In 2015, the auditing committee of the German Bundestag criticized the project as too expensive and urged the trough / tunnel planning to be modified in favor of a level route of the B 158 with suitable noise barriers. The Federal Ministry of Transport later followed this view. In 2016, a financial requirement of 44.7 million euros was assumed for the trough variant. The state of Brandenburg considers the trough variant to be necessary.
According to the Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection of the State of Berlin, there is no need to change the planning:
"Neither the Ministry of Infrastructure and State Planning nor the Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection see the ground-level variant required by the Federal Parliament's Audit Committee and the Federal Ministry of Transport as being enforceable under planning law."
According to the Ministry of Infrastructure and State Planning of the State of Brandenburg, noise barriers up to ten meters high would be necessary, which would create a disproportionate fragmentation effect on the border with the State of Berlin. The plan approval process has been suspended since 2013 until further notice; reliable statements on the continuation of the plan approval process are currently (as of October 2016) not possible. As of 2015, 1.8 million euros have been spent on planning.
The Brandenburg Transport Minister Kathrin Schneider and the Berlin Transport Senator Regine Günther agreed in 2018 to bear the additional costs for the trough solution. Currently (as of September 2018) the capping limits are still being negotiated, according to Edgar Gaffry from the Brandenburg State Office for Roads at a traffic conference of the Chamber of Commerce on September 4, 2018 in Ahrensfelde. After the negotiations have been concluded, a new plan approval procedure is expected to take place.
The project is listed as an urgent requirement in the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2030 .
On Friday, August 16, 2019, according to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Regional Planning of the State of Brandenburg, the financing agreement for the implementation of the trough solution was submitted to the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure for approval. At the same time it was announced that the State Road Administration had started updating the plans in autumn 2018 due to changed regulations. The effects on the environment must therefore be re-examined.
In the agreement between the federal government and the states of Berlin and Brandenburg as of July 12, 2018, costs of 54.892 million euros are assumed for the trough solution. The state of Brandenburg expects to be able to resume the plan approval procedure in mid-2020. It is unclear when the planning approval decision can be expected. The start of construction is therefore just as unclear.

Coming from Berlin, the B 158 crosses the Berliner Ring in Ahrensfelde ( A 10 , junction 2 Berlin-Hohenschönhausen ). Behind Ahrensfelde and Werneuchen as communities in the closer interdependence area , the old Freienwalder Chaussee becomes one of the most beautiful old highways in Brandenburg. It runs parallel to the Wriezener Bahn until after Tiefensee . There it reaches the Prötzel forest , one of the largest and most varied closed Brandenburg forest areas, a core part of Oberbarnim . To the right of the road is the Gamengrund described by Theodor Fontane , an Ice Age gully which, as a geotope, cuts through the Barnim plateau in a north-south direction with a long chain of narrow channel lakes . These include the Gamensee near Tiefensee and north of it the Mittelsee . At the end of the middle lake, the road crosses the Gamengrund near Leuenberg in an east-west direction and through the Freienwalder Forest reaches the town of Bad Freienwalde. It crosses federal highway 167 . From Bad Freienwalde, the B 158 continues to the northeast in the direction of Hohenwutzen. The course of the B 158 was changed in 2005 by upgrading an existing state road. After the village of Schiffmühle, the B 158 turns north and leads around via Oderberg and Parstein to Angermünde. It ends at the intersection with the B 2 and the B 198 . The piece up to the Hohenwutzen border crossing has since been called the B 158a.
Some of the facilities and ancillary facilities on the historic street are listed , for example the Chausseehaus in the Werftpfuhl district of Werneuchen as a former checkpoint. The old milestones as round base stones such as in Seefeld or in Werneuchen (at kilometer 35.6) are under protection. The same applies to old signposts, such as the one at kilometer 29.5 in Tiefensee.
Between Bad Freienwalde and Angermünde, the B 158 is part of the Märkische Eiszeitstraße .
A scenic route is north from Werneuchen to Bad Freienwalde through the wooded, Ice Age landscape of the Gamengrund.
