Federal Highway 481
|Bundesstrasse 481 in Germany|
|Operator:||Federal Republic of Germany|
|Overall length:||33 km|
The road between Rheine and Mesum was expanded into a Chaussee in 1897 and the subsequent section to Emsdetten in 1899 . The railway line running parallel to the road already met a large part of the traffic needs, so that a faster road construction would not have been economical. Bundesstraße 481 was set up in the early 1960s to improve the network of federal highways. The stretch from Rheine to Federal Motorway 30 was added a few years later, but has since been rededicated as a state road.
The federal highway 481 begins in Rheine at the federal highway 70 and then continues through the urban area towards the south past Rheine-Mesum through Emsdetten . Further south, the B 481 crosses the B 219 Ibbenbüren-Münster near the town of Greven . It ends as a federal road at the Greven junction of the A 1 and continues from there as the L 587.
The construction of a section between Warendorfer Strasse and Schifffahrter Damm (intersection with Sudmühlenstrasse) is planned as a northern extension of the eastern bypass road from Münster, B 51 . The planning approval took place together with the 3rd construction phase for the expansion of the federal highway B 51.
