CCR was awarded the Rodovia Presidente Dutra, or Via Dutra concession, in 1995. It accounted for 13.1% of gross operating revenues in 2019. The road covers the 402.0-kilometer section of Via Dutra Highway (BR-116).
Via Dutra is the principal corridor between the two most important metropolitan areas in Brazil, in the state of Rio de Janeiro —Resende, Volta Redonda and Barra Mansa —and the state of São Paulo —São José dos Campos, Taubaté and Jacareí.
The highway also crosses agricultural regions, as well as a mountainous section known as the Serra das Araras. It is an interstate highway with urban sections, typically a divided highway with two lanes in each direction and with shoulders. In some sections the shoulder has been converted into a third lane for slow-moving trucks or acceleration or deceleration lanes. In the metropolitan areas of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, there are service roads separated from the main highway for slower-moving urban traffic.
The Via Dutra contains six toll plazas, four weighing stations, two operational control centers, and eleven user assistance bases. CCR holds the NovaDutra concession for a period of 25 years, until February 2021, pursuant to a grant from the federal government, represented by ANTT.
