The federal highway 98 (abbreviation: B 98 ) is a federal highway in Germany . It begins in Zeithain on the B 169 and ends with section 1 in Laußnitz on the B 97 . With section 2, it begins at Bischofswerda on the A 4 and ends in Oppach on the B 96 .
This part originally began directly on the Bischofswerdaer Altmarkt, later on Dresdner Strasse in the western part of the city.
Since the 2000s, a north-south connection between Bernsdorf and Sebnitz has been created in sections, connecting the A 13 at the Ruhland junction with the Saxon Switzerland via the A 4 (AS Burkau ) . Most of the route was rebuilt remotely. The northern and longest section up to the A4 is dedicated as S 94 . The three-kilometer section from Rammenau to the B 6 west of Bischofswerda was opened to traffic on December 21, 2011 and is expected to cost six million euros. The connection to the B 6 is designed without crossing. The three-kilometer section from there to Niederputzkau was released as the B 98 on July 30, 2010, thereby removing the main road from the town of Bischofswerda. Due to several bridge structures, this short piece cost 14 million euros.
While the bypass road continues south as the S 156, the B 98 branches off to the east at Niederputzkau today. It runs through the Lausitzer Bergland almost continuously within closed towns and does not have the character of a trunk road. In the course of the route, the Bischofswerda – Zittau railway line is crossed three times : through the railway viaduct in Putzkau and by means of level crossings in Neukirch and Sohland .
In the future, as part of the S 156, which was re-routed in 2007, the B 98 will continue south from the Niederputzkau junction to Langburkersdorf , where it will turn north-east and after crossing the Hohwald (now the S 154), it will finally come across the old route in Steinigtwolmsdorf . This should relieve the Waldhufendörfer Putzkau, Neukirch, Ringenhain and Steinigtwolmsdorf over a total of 11 km.
