Opening Date
The Olympic Boulevard, which began construction in 1982, was one of the 5th Republic's comprehensive development projects.

It was constructed to deal with the demand for transportation south of the Han River by establishing or improving a 37km-long motorway along the Han River.

The road was also aimed at connecting Gimpo Airport to Jamsil Sports Complex (Olympic Main Stadium), located in Jamsil, along the Han River, to transport foreigners at the 1986 Asian Games and the 1988 Summer Olympics.

As a result, unlike Gangbyeon Expressway, the road south of the Han River was named Olympic Boulevard.
