The Trans-Amazonian Highway was inaugurated on August 30, 1972. It is 5,300 km long, making it the third longest highway in Brazil. It was originally planned to be a fully

paved highway 5,200 kilometers long. However, these plans were modified

following its inauguration.

In particular, because of high construction costs and Brazil financial crisis in

the late 970s, only a part of the highway was paved, from its beginning to 200

km ahead of Marabá. The lack of a fully sealed road causes many problems. Travel

on the non-paved stretches of the highway is extremely difficult during the

region’s rainy season between October and March. In the wet season cars often

get stuck in the poorly constructed road and in the dry season there are often

pot holes in the dry mud roads that damage vehicles.

Construction of the highway was very challenging because of the remoteness of

the site. Workers building the road were frequently isolated and without

communication, occasional visits to nearby cities providing the only contact.

Access to the construction sites was mostly accomplished by small airplanes

using temporary airstrips and boats. Today construction vehicles can be seen

traversing the road east and west bringing dirt and gravel to prepare for paving

operations.

the Amazon. Some adventurers have used this route to traverse the width of the
