The expansion will result in the stretch from Delicias, Santa Tecla to old Poliedro having 8 lanes, while the road from old Poliedro to San Juan Opico will have 6 lanes.

Over 50% of the project cost will be financed by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) and the Korea Import and Export Bank.
