This first section being opened will provide a connection between the Leon XIII and the Calle Blancos routes.

The first four stages of the Circunvalacion Norte project are costing around $163 million to construct, with the flyover stretch being the most costly and complex portion of the work.

Funding from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) worth $70 million are expected to pay for the firth portion of the project.

Construction of the entire Circunvalacion Norte project is expected to be complete in 2022.
