The former partial designation of this route was D65.
Currently (as of May 2013), continuous section between Trnava and bypass of Banská Bystrica is in operation. A linking section to Ružomberok and consequently back to motorway D1 has been planned since 2008. Both sections, Nitra-Hronský Beňadik and bypass of Banská Bystrica, were built, and are operated under the conditions of a Public-private partnership project, unlike the rest of Slovak motorway and expressway network.
