Funding is provided for the construction of a 10 km-long, three-track bypass road between the towns of Wiesenau and Brieskow-Finkenheerd, which lie to the south of Frankfurt an der Oder, close to the border with Poland. The project is part of a wider scheme for the construction and expansion of the Order-Lausitz road (B112/B97n) between Frankfurt an der Oder (A12) and Cottbus (A15).

The bypass increases road capacity and traffic speeds, while improving accessibility to the road network for both passenger and goods vehicles. Journey times are reduced because the new road helps to separate inter-regional traffic from the cities of Briesko-Finkenheerd, Wiesenau and Ziltendorf. Pooling national traffic on a separate route also improves traffic flow and safety.

In addition, greater accessibility to the road network is expected to bring benefits to the regional economy, especially to the Frankfurt an der Oder area. Road design provides for a maximum speed of 100 km/hour.
