This summer the B 179 in Tyrol is again one of the main routes for north-south and south-north traffic.
There have already been a number of traffic jams during the past weekends, and over the next weekends - especially the upcoming one, which coincides with the start of vacations in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg - even more tourist traffic can be expected, resulting in more tailbacks and heavy evasion traffic. Two years ago, the same situation caused considerable congestion and affected the security of supply, which is why the authorities prohibited drivers from turning off the B 179.
In order to guarantee the safety and uninterrupted flow of traffic in the low level road network and in the the municipalities located along the B 179, the state of Tyrol, following recommendation of its experts and in close coordination with the authorities, has imposed turn-off bans in the Reutte area, which will be in effect from 7 a.m. on Saturday, July 31, to 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 12, and will aplly to all vehicles in transit, in both directions. Specifically, this concerns the slip roads in the area of Reutte Nord and Vils. Originating and terminating traffic and local residents are excluded from the ban.

The turn-off bans in the Reutte district affect the following road sections:
• L 288 Pinswanger Straße (entire length)
