From Monday, May 13, through Friday, May 17, the tunnel will be closed each night from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following day.

Florentiusgraben partially closed due to bridge renovation

The bridge on Budapester Strasse over the Florentiusgraben is currently being renovated. For the duration of the work on the more than 100-year-old bridge, the roadway of the Florentiusgraben in Bonn's city center will be partially closed. The southern staircase will therefore not be accessible. According to the city, the work is scheduled to last until the end of October 2024.

Arndstrasse will be closed in sections

BonnNetz is expanding the district heating network in Bonn's Südstadt district. It is replacing the main district heating pipeline on Adenaueralle at house number 102 in the direction of Arndtstrasse. The pipes will then be laid underneath Arndstrasse up to Niebuhrstrasse 44. Arndstrasse will be fully closed in sections for the work. Pedestrians and cyclists should still be able to get to their homes. The work is scheduled to last until December of 2025.

Plittersdorfer Strasse water pipes

BonnNetz started work in April on replacing the water pipes on Plittersdorfer Strasse in Bad Godesberg. The work is to cover 200 meters between Körnerstrasse and Beethovenallee, according to BonnNetz. It will be a one-way street for the duration of the construction work, with motorists only being able to drive in the direction of Ubierstrasse. A detour is signposted. The construction work is expected to last until mid-October.

Major construction sites last several months

Most of these are for municipal sewer system and the gas, water and district heating network of Stadtwerke Bonn (SWB). Bornheimer Strasse is one of the most complex construction sites. Here, the entire pipeline infrastructure for district heating, gas, water and the energy supply, as well as telecommunications, are expected to be renewed before the end of the year.
