Autopista Central

Autopista Central (Central Highway) is a modern, privatized, partially submerged highway in Chile. It is the longest of the Santiago urban highways with a length of 60.5 km (37.6 mi).

Autopista Central's northern terminus is at the interchange with Vespucio Norte Express, where it continues northward as Autopista del Aconcagua. The southern terminus is located immediately north of the Maipo River.

Autopista Central really consists of two highways, the westernmost of which branches off from the main highway close to the easternmost portion of Cerro Renca. This auxiliary highway bypasses downtown Santiago and is about 21 km (13 mi) in length.[1] The two highways rejoin at Las Acacias Street in San Bernardo.

The eastern highway is the section of Chile Route 5 that traverses Santiago.
