"There are 12 stoplights on the road from Varakļāni to Viļāni, and there are massive roadworks there. While to make it from Daugavpils to Medumi you have to take into account that it takes 40 minutes extra," said Anna Kononova, a representative of Latvian State Roads.
Closer to the capital, the Riga detour at the Salaspils municipality has only one lane operational and thus may be particularly slow.
Other roads with slow traffic include the Bašķi-Preiļi road, the Līvāni railroad pass, and more.
The Latvian State Roads website has a helpful map showing road repairs and traffic bottlenecks across Latvia.
