Crossing the Chacao canal in only three minutes

Route 5 is the longest highway in Chile, stretching from Arica to Quellón in Chiloé, hence connecting the country throughout a 3353 km long highway. The road is interrupted between the continent and the Chiloé Island by the Chacao Channel, where all traffic runs, via a 30 to 45 minutes long trip by ferry.

Trevi Chile Spa, the Chilean subsidiary of  Trevi SpA is carrying out the foundation works in the Chacao Bridge project: once it will be completed, there will be no interruption between the continent and the Chiloé Island and time required to cross the channel will be just 3 minutes.

The country will be permanently connected from Arica in the North of Chile to Quellón in the Chiloé Island.
