Temporary traffic arrangements at Ahtri-Jõe intersection from 3 June

Due to the construction of Reidi tee, the Ahtri-Lootsi-Tuukri-Jõe intersection in the Tallinn Port area will be partially closed from Monday, 3 June, and the port will not be accessible via Jõe tänav and Lootsi tänav.

The lanes leading to and from the port at Lootsi tänav will be closed up to the Ahtri intersection. Access to and exit from the port will be provided via Lootsi side street, which will be adapted for two-way traffic. Terminal D will also be accessible from Petrooleumi tänav, and Uus-Sadama tänav will be fully opened for traffic from 25 June at the latest.

Jõe tänav will be closed for vehicle traffic on the section from Karu tänav to the Ahtri intersection. A pedestrian passage from Jõe tänav to Ahtri tänav and to the Nautica Centre will be provided. In addition, a temporary fenced path will be provided on the other side of Jõe tänav for pedestrians moving between Tuukri tänav and Karu tänav.

The section of Ahtri tänav towards the Nautica Centre will also be closed up to the Ahtri intersection. The section of Ahtri tänav towards Tuukri tänav will remain open, with one lane in either direction being available for traffic before the intersection.

Local people will have access to their properties and offices. The residents of Karu tänav can use it as a two-way street, with entrance and exit via Tuukri tänav. The properties at Jõe tänav will be accessible from Narva maantee. Entry to the parking area of office buildings will be provided via the Ahtri intersection. The residents of Lootsi tänav can use the Lootsi side street connection to Tuukri tänav or the port-end street entrance via Petrooleumi tänav.

The extensive street closures are required for connecting the intersection with Reidi tee, as well as for renovating the rainwater drainage under the street, which should reduce the flooding problems in the area. We acknowledge the inconvenience caused by the construction for the residents of the port area, as well as for other road users, but we hope for understanding of the people of Tallinn in this matter. We would kindly ask all road users to pay close attention to the temporary traffic signs. The temporary traffic arrangements will remain in force until mid-August.
