Fernpassstraße - B179

The Fern Pass is one of the most important (and busiest) roads in Austria and was closed for all traffic since Saturday. During the extreme snowfall of the past week, the road was no longer free for traffic and the road was closed at various places, such as near the tunnel in Lermoos. An overview of the past few days:

It started last week with big traffic jams during the changeover day, on Saturday. Sunday evening, January 13, the weather started snowing and this time it was an extreme dump:
