Intermodial connections seem to be the buzz words in the Federal Highway Administration nowadays, but this expressway seemed to be a trend setter in the 1970s. Construction began in 1974 to provide a high-speed connection to the major airport serving the capital region. The connector opened to traffic in 1977.
