Routes and Roads in the Province
The province of San Juan is crossed by the National Route No. 40. Imagine traveling throughout the province from the north arriving from La Rioja to the south where you will find yourself in Mendoza.
However, that's not the only route. There is Route 20 that starts in Buenos Aires under the name of Hipolito Irigoyen Avenue, which then turns into a National Route in the department of Santa Lucia. It links San Luis, Cordoba and Buenos Aires.
Avenida de Circunvalación is the main fast route to enter and exit the City of San Juan. On the other hand, if you are downtown, you may take Jose Ignacio de la Roza Avenue to cross the Desamparados area and enter the department of Rivadavia, where Route 12 starts. Libertador San Martín is another important Avenue, which starts in the KM 0 and connects the Capital department with Rivadavia and Ullum to the west and with Santa Lucia to the east.
Known as Conector Sur, this modern road system allows you to access nearby areas and departments from the capital, including the most populated areas such as Rawson or Pocito.
