  • The federal highway 486 (abbreviation: B 486 ) is a German federal highway in Hesse ; it runs through the Frankfurt am Main area .

    History / other

    The road between Rüsselsheim , Mörfelden and Langen was expanded into a Chaussee between 1829 and 1831 . A decade later, between 1841 and 1845, the eastern section of the route from Langen via Dreieich - Offenthal , Urberach , Eppertshausen and Münster to Dieburg was given a solid road surface.

    The federal highway 486 was set up in the mid / late 1960s to improve the network of federal highways in the Frankfurt am Main area.

    Planning and construction

    After many years of planning, the around 3.35 kilometers long Dreieich-Offenthal bypass was opened to traffic on December 13, 2013. Up until then, up to 30,000 vehicles drove through town every day. The junction B 486 / L 3317 in particular was congested during peak traffic times. Long traffic jams regularly formed. By autumn 2014, the connecting areas between the old B 486 and the new bypass road as well as the approximately 660 meter long eastern spline of the L 3001 coming from Dietzenbach should be ready.

    There are also plans to widen the B 486 between Langen (junction to Egelsbach: Princess-Margaret-Allee, K168) and the junction to the federal motorway 5 to four lanes. The plan approval procedure is in progress (as of May 2014)
