The gradual construction of the route between Boaza and the connection to Pleven - Lovech road is divided into 3 sections. The 51.5 km stretch will have 17 viaducts, 5 bridges, 5 junctions, 9 overpasses and subways and one tunnel.

Section 1, with a length of 15.26 km, starts from Boaza and it will be until the crossing with Lukovit-Ugarchin road, including “Dermantsi” road junction. It is envisaged to have two road junctions, four bridge facilities and 2 viaducts. Construction works are carried out in three subdivisions. In the first one it is about 25.5%, in the second one – about 59.5%, and in the third one – about 2%.

Section 2 begins at the end of the road junction “Dermantsi” and it is next to the connection with the road III-3005 Radyuvene-Katunets, including road junction “Kalenik”.
