Bundesautobahn 71 (translates from German as Federal Motorway 71, short form Autobahn 71, abbreviated as BAB 71 or A 71) is an Autobahn under construction in Germany. When completed, it will connect the A 38 and Erfurt to the A 70 near Schweinfurt. A further northern extension to the A 14 near Plötzkau has been proposed by the state government of Sachsen-Anhalt.[1]

Construction on the A 71, supervised by DEGES, began in 1996, most parts were being opened by December 2005. Completion is projected for 2014. The section through the Thuringian Forest was the most expensive road ever built in Germany with an average cost of 16 million euro for each mile (roughly 10 million euro for every kilometre). This section includes the Rennsteig Tunnel which is the longest road tunnel in Germany at 5 miles (7.9 km).
