I rode the Transalpina several weeks back, maybe 27 or 28 May. At the time the Transfag was closed due to snow.

19th June - the tunnel was open - just

the road surface and road condition is conducive to being a true mountain road and NOT the best road in the world

Transalpine was open, though lots of roadworks and they are widening the road, lots of nice tight and sweeping corners, better than the Transfagarasan to ride too

Both open and passable on 25th June

Just rode both the Transfagarasan & Transalpina last Monday 25th June from/to Sibiu in a clockwise direction took me about 9 hours. Fantastic, Transalpina the better riding experience, though the views riding up to and from the the top of Transfagarasan were awesome. Brand new black top on Transalpina which is 99.9% complete - no markings or barriers at the top. Avoid weekends if you want the better riding experience - zero traffic!!! Fantastic day on the bike - unforgettable.
