A partial interstate highway has opened, connecting Gangneung to Donghae making daily commuting possible between Yeongdong and Yeongseo, Moreover, the completion of the Jungang interstate highway (Chuncheon ~ Taegu) made the traffic situation to Gyeongsang-do region much more palatable.

Seoul-Chuncheon Highway

With the opening of the Seoul-Chuncheon Highway in July of 2009, it takes just an hour from Seoul to Chuncheon.

The new route significantly reduces travel time between Seoul and the lakeside city Chuncheon. It used to take 100 minutes by bus to get from eastern Seoul to Chuncheon during the week and two to three hours on weekends and holidays. It now takes just an hour.

The highway connecting the Gangil Interchange in Seoul to the Chuncheon Junction cuts through a lush and verdant swath of green fields, inviting lakes and mountain corridors.
