A bridge over the Sozh River on the M8 highway is planned to be opened next month. This will reduce the traffic in the regional center and improve the environmental situation. Last year the old bridge was recognized to be in a damaged condition. The length of the new overpass is about five hundred and fifty meters. According to experts, the bridge will last at least a hundred years. Before its opening, trial crossing will be conducted. And the old one will be destroyed according to the project, which is now undergoing examination.
