According to the highway department, Usina Biodiesel Potencial Petróleo will finance the paving as part of the Programa Paraná Competitivo initiative.

"This paving work will enable even more investments, attracting new companies and expanding potential activities," said Paraná state governor Beto Richa (pictured). "Along with this project we are negotiating other works with the BR-476 concessionaire to widen the highway in the urban perimeter," he maintained.
