|Bundesstrasse 246 in Germany|
|Operator:||Federal Republic of Germany|
|Overall length:||254 km|
The B 246 runs in an east-west direction and consists of two sections. The longer eastern part begins in Königsborn on the B 184 , passes the Fläming , runs eastwards past Berlin and ends in Eisenhüttenstadt on the B 112 . The shorter western part of the B 246 leads from the B 245 near Neuwegersleben in an eastward direction to the B 246a in Wanzleben .
The Reichsstraße 246, named in the 1930s, led from Quedlinburg via Hedersleben to Kroppenstedt (R 81) and was 22 kilometers long. After the founding of the GDR , the Reichsstrasse numbers continued to be used for the new trunk road network, the road was known as trunk road 246 (F 246) until 1990 .
The western part of the B 246 has existed since 2004 through the reclassification of state roads, district roads and municipal roads. A reclassification of the state road 50 between the B 246a and the federal highway 14 is planned for the future. It is also planned to extend the B 246 at its eastern end in Eisenhüttenstadt to the Polish border on the Oder and to create a new border crossing to Poland. The law on the expansion of trunk roads from the end of 2016 follows the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2030 and sets the urgency of the eastern extension to further requirements with planning rights, so implementation before 2030 is not planned, but possible.
