The first highway, named after the first president of Kosovo Ibrahim Rugova, built in Kosovo will be open to traffic from Wednesday morning.

The construction of the highway started in 2010, and was supported by the American-Turkish consortium Bechtel & Enka GP.

The highway starts from the border with Albania in Morin, south of Kosovo, and reaches the border with Serbia in Merdare, north Kosovo.

Even though there are no official data about the costs of this highway, some experts estimate the cost to be over one billion Euro.
