Doprastav-Strabag won the state tender with a bid of €114.6 million after another bidder (Hant) was excluded from the tender. The construction, which the ministry said will cost some €153 million less than if it had been carried out via a PPP (public-private partnership), is expected to be finished and opened in November 2014.

Work on the project is expected to generate some 800 jobs and will start within the next three weeks. Opening of this section of the D1 between the Branisko tunnel and Prešov should significantly relieve traffic transiting Hendrichovce, Bertótovce and Chminianska Nová Ves.
