Course of the road
The federal highway 500 (abbreviation: B 500 ) is a federal highway in Germany . It begins on the border with France near Iffezheim and ends on the B 34 in Waldshut .
At the time of National Socialism , a panoramic road was planned across the entire Black Forest from Baden-Baden to Waldshut. But only the following parts were realized: The Black Forest High Road in the northern Black Forest from Baden-Baden to Freudenstadt and the two sections in the southern Black Forest from Triberg to Waldshut, these now form the B 500. The western section from the Rhine to Baden-Baden did not come until the 1970s Years to it.
Planned expansion and rededication to the motorway
The section between Baden-Baden and the border crossing to France near Iffezheim (continued as Departementsstraße 4) is to be expanded to four lanes in the medium term and rededicated to the A 863 motorway. The Baden-Baden junction, which links the B 500 with the A 5 motorway and has already been developed as a clover leaf , will then become the Baden-Baden motorway junction. On the French side, only a short section in the area of the outlet center has so far been expanded to four lanes.
