The federal highway 87 (abbreviation: B 87 ) is a federal highway in Germany . It begins in Ilmenau and ends in Frankfurt (Oder) . It runs in Thuringia on parts of the Thuringian Porcelain Route and the Romanesque Road .



Today's federal highway 87 was used as a road connection between Frankfurt (Oder) and Leipzig in the Middle Ages . Between Leipzig and Eckartsberga it follows the historical course of the Via Regia . Its expansion into a fortified art road was completed in 1819. The road link from Leipzig to Eilenburg was also completed by 1845. In order to enable the extension of the route from Eilenburg to Frankfurt (Oder), a share association was founded on November 20, 1854. The Frankfurt an der Oder Leipziger Chausseebaugesellschaft had its seat in Lübben. The route ran from Eilenburg via Torgau, Herzberg, Schlieben, Luckau, Lübben, Beeskow and Müllrose to Frankfurt (Oder). The easternmost section of the route between Frankfurt (Oder) and Beeskow was expanded into a paved artificial road in 1856. Road construction south of Umpferstedt did not begin until 1860 with the section to Mellingen.

Previous routes and names

The Prussian Staatschaussee No. 33 ran from Frankfurt (Oder) to the Saxon city of Leipzig. There the Prussian State Office No. 69 began , which connected Leipzig and Weißenfels. In Weißenfels, this street led into the Prussian State Office No. 66 , which led from Halle to Weimar.

With the original numbering in 1932, the then long-distance road 87 (FVS 87), renamed Reichsstraße 87 (R 87) in 1934, ended at the then long-distance road 7 (later Reichsstraße 7 ) in Umpferstedt (between Jena and Weimar). In 1961 the road, now again called trunk road 87 (but abbreviated as F 87 ), was extended from Umpferstedt to Ilmenau .


Bundesstraße 87 has been running since 2000 between the Lützen Süd (A 38) and Weißenfels (A 9) junctions on the A 38 and A 9 motorways , the former route between Weißenfels and Lützen has been rededicated as the L 188. The section between Bad Berka and the Apolda junction of federal motorway 4 was downgraded to a district road in 2007. The last stretch between AS Ilmenau-Ost and the town of Ilmenau was downgraded to a country road in 2013. The piece between the junction and Stadtilm followed in 2018.

Further planning

The federal highway 87n from Meiningen to Fulda has been planned since 1996 , the Thuringian part of which is classified as a further requirement in the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2030 . There will be no connection to the B 87, which ends in Ilmenau.

In the summer of 2009, the start of the regional planning procedure for the new construction of the B 87n between the north-east of Leipzig, Taucha and Eilenburg was announced. The new route was to run through the terminal moraine landscape of the Parthe with a four-lane expansion with a motorway character . After it became known, there were protests by environmental groups and residents, which resulted in the "Taucha Declaration". The regional planning procedure was discontinued in mid-2015. An alternative route to the north, which partly uses the S4 and B 2 to the west of Eilenburg and meets the A 14 at the Leipzig-Mitte junction , was included in the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2030 as a "further requirement" . In the summer of 2018, DEGES started a participation process in which all variants are checked again. A tunnel up to two kilometers long under Taucha is also being examined.

In the 1990s, it was planned to replace the B 87 with the Leipzig-Lusatia axis planned as federal motorway 16 . After these plans had been rejected, at the end of August 2011 the long-term planned expansion of the B 87 between the BAB 14 and Torgau via Eilenburg with four lanes was also rejected. Since then, the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan only sees a need for a four-lane expansion in the BAB 14 – Eilenburg section; a three-lane B87 is sufficient between Eilenburg and Torgau. Most of the local politics were negative. The mayor of Eilenburg, Hubertus Wacker, gave its approval. The roadway extension for the three-lane section began in August 2016.

Currently (2011) there are plans for the Bad Kösen , Lübben and Naumburg (Saale) bypasses . For this purpose, the B 87 between Taugwitz and Wethau is to be re-routed. The Saale Valley would be spanned between Großheringen and Saaleck by a 1,200 m long bridge on bridge piers up to 60 m high. In the course of the planning, the question of the extent to which the planned area monument of the Naumburg and Saale Valley World Heritage Site would result was not examined. There was no coordination with ICOMOS and UNESCO .
