  • The federal highway 176 (abbreviation: B 176 ) is a German federal highway in Thuringia , Saxony-Anhalt and in the Free State of Saxony .


    The B 176 leads past the major cities of Erfurt and Leipzig . The alignment in large sections does not correspond to a higher-level road. In the area of ​​the Central German Revier between Hohenmölsen and Pegau it is interrupted by an opencast mine .

    In 2009 the federal highway 176 was relocated in the Unstrut-Hainich district between Bad Langensalza and Straussfurt. Up until that point in time, the road began in Merxleben ( B 84 ), a district of Bad Langensalza . From here it led through the Thuringian Basin towards Sömmerda . The places Klettstedt , Bad Tennstedt , Ballhausen , and Schwerstedt were touched. The new route runs along the former L 1042 . This leads from Bad Langensalza to Erfurt via Gräfentonna south of the old route and is better developed and heavily used. The route also affects all villages along the route, except for Gräfentonna. A bypass around Gräfentonna is planned. The following route to the B 4 is also to be expanded. The B 176 ends at Andisleben at the B 4 , where it begins again in Straussfurt , a few kilometers away , and leads to Sömmerda. The former route from Merxleben to Straussfurt was downgraded to L 3176.

    In the future, the B 176 will lead from Kölleda via Dermsdorf to the Kölleda junction of the A 71 and be interrupted by this. Kölleda is also to receive a northern bypass.

    Since 2009, Sömmerda has been largely relieved by a bypass on the north side , an extension of the bypass to completely bypass Sömmerda is currently being planned. There has been a connection to the A 71 east of Sömmerda since 2004 . The B 176 leads via Kölleda over the state border Thuringia / Saxony-Anhalt to Bad Bibra ( B 250 ), whose inner city has been relieved of an internal bypass since 2015. The B 176 runs between Laucha an der Unstrut and Freyburg in the Unstrut Valley , which is Germany's northernmost wine-growing region .

    At Freyburg (Unstrut) , the river is crossed with its bypass, and the B 176 partly continues in three lanes to the northeast. At Leiha she encounters the central German lignite mining area . Here it swings at an acute angle to the south and reaches the B 91 shortly before Weißenfels .

    The B 176 is interrupted for 27 kilometers from Weißenfels to Pegau. In the 1950s the federal road was interrupted by the Profen opencast mine . The Weißenfels bypass replaced the inner-city Saale bridge in 1997. The remainder were downgraded to state, country, district and municipal roads, as the route is only of regional importance. East of the A 9 in particular , it serves as a northern access road for Hohenmölsen, which is surrounded by opencast mines in the east.

    Near the Saxon Pegau, the federal highway 176 begins again as a junction of the B 2 and runs to Borna . In the course of the B 93 and B 95 , the federal road has been expanded to four lanes. A connection to the newly built Leipzig – Chemnitz A 72 motorway is planned here. In the further course the federal highway 176 reaches the towns of Bad Lausick and Colditz ( B 107 ), crosses the Zwickauer Mulde and joins the B 175 at Hartha ( district of central Saxony ) .
