The Hochmoselbrücke is a major new road bridge, currently under construction, that will cross the valley of the Moselle south of Ürzig and north of Zeltingen-Rachtig in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. The bridge – part of a new road connection, the Hochmoselübergang , incorporating a rerouted stretch of Bundesstrasse 50 – is intended to facilitate the flow of traffic between Belgian and Dutch ports and the greater Frankfurt area.
A proposal for the highway and bridge was first made three decades ago for strategic reasons during the Cold War. The project was reactivated to link the Frankfurt area, specifically the Hahn airport, to the Belgian and Dutch harbors with updated plans drawn in the early 21st century.
