Project Details


The project is one section of a wider plan to upgrade and pave the highway connecting Medellín and Quibdó, of which approximately half is unpaved. Its goal is to improve connectivity between the capital of Chocó department and central Colombia. The Medellín-Quibdó highway is considered one of the most dangerous in the country due to frequent landslides and a high rate of accidents.
