Dramatic shortcut for Seoul-East Sea travel opens Friday

The Dongsea Highway will open tonight, enabling cars to reach Yangyang, a scenic coastal city in Gangwon Province, from Seoul within 90 minutes.

This represents a travel time cut of about 40 minutes.

Dongsea Highway extends 71.7 kilometers from East Hongcheon to Yangyang. It has 35 tunnels and 58 viaducts.

The highway is expected to boost economic growth in northern Gangwon Province and regions across Mt. Seorak and the east coast.

The expressway will have an opening ceremony at 8 p.m.
