Authorities are responding to the discovery of a World War II-era bomb in Koblenz July 8. The device was discovered in the Lutzel area near Andernacherstrasse; authorities will impose a 300-meter (984 foot) exclusion zone around the device from 17:30 to facilitate the disposal operation. For further information on road closures, please click here.
All businesses and residents within the exclusion zone must be evacuated and no traffic will be permitted for the duration of the disposal operation. Public transport normally routed through the area may be canceled or diverted; rail traffic operating via Koblenz-Lutz Station will likely be disrupted. Increased traffic congestion is likely in the surrounding area as drivers seek alternative routes.
Avoid the area until authorities give the all-clear. Reconfirm appointments in the immediate area. Check public transport schedules and local traffic conditions for disruptions before travel; plan alternative routes if necessary.
