This project is the modernization of the La Paz-El Alto Highway. The highway connects Bolivia’s capital city, La Paz, to what is now considered Bolivia’s economic capital, El Alto. The La Paz-El Alto Highway is part of the F-02 fundamental network, which moves over 300,000 people every day and provides a transport route for goods.
