Bridge on Ring Road Opens To Pedestrians

By Iceland Review

The bridge over Steinavötn river has been opened to pedestrian traffic following damage by flooding. Ring Road One is still closed for car traffic between Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and Höfn. It is not possible to bypass the closure, except by driving all the way around Iceland.

If all goes according to schedule, a temporary bridge will be opened to vehicular traffic on Friday.

Readers can keep up to date on road conditions in Iceland on the website of The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration.
