Highway system

The planning of the highway would consist of connecting Macapá, Amapá with the Brazil-Colombia border in the municipality of São Gabriel da Cachoeira, Amazonas. The highway would have 2,454.7 km (1,525.3 mi) in total. However, only small stretches of it have been implemented.[3] In 1976, the highway entered the Wajãpi Indigenous Territory in Amapá. The invasion was repelled by the indigenous leadership who expelled the intruders between the 1980s and the 1990s,[4] and therefore, the highway will probably never be completely built.[3]
