Highway 1: Latrun to Jerusalem Closed
On Thursday 19th January, 2017 – at 10:00 p.m. a section of Highway 1 between Latrun and Jerusalem – near the Harel Interchange at Mevaseret Zion – will be closed for 12 hours to finalize work on two 800-meter tunnels.
On the positive side, this short 12 hour inconvenience will mean that your journey time from Tel Aviv —> Jerusalem will be reduced by 10 minutes. This trip is now expected to take 35 minutes instead of 45.
Traffic police will be on hand to ensure a smooth flow of traffic and redirect motorists as necessary.
For more information call 110 – the police information center.
This section of road will re-open on Friday 20th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
