New Road Being Built for Access to Blue Lagoon and Grindavík

The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration (IRCA) is currently working on the construction of a new road within the lava-protected area of Svartsengi, including Grindavík and the Blue Lagoon. This news was made public via an announcement from IRCA, writes the Iceland Review.

The Blue Lagoon recently reopened, but guests were instructed to use an alternative route to reach the attraction, as the regular route is blocked by lava.

Recent eruptions have caused lava to partially flow over two primary roads connecting both the Reykjanes town of Grindavík and the Blue Lagoon to other major highways: Grindavíkirvegur and Bláalónsvegur. The new road will enable drivers to drive from Grindavíkirvegur to Bláalónsvegur via a new route connected to Nesvegur, located just west of the town.
