Extension federal route BR-116 (RS)

The project calls for work aimed at widening federal highway BR-116 and constructing its connecting Pelotas municipal bypass in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Widening will take place along a stretch between Pelotas and the city of Guaíba which is adjacent to state capital Porto Alegre. The area is of significant importance for passenger and cargo traffic given that Pelotas is located within 25km of Rio Grande Port. Work involves widening and improving the highway. The project was divided into nine work lots, contracts for which were awarded separately.
