There are nine tunnels and four bridges at KM: 24 + 900- 39 + 410.57 of the Artvin–Erzurum State Road. There are six tunnels and four bridges at the section between Yusufeli–Sarıgol Road KM: 0 + 000 8 + 593.81.

This project is located in the North-South corridor of our country and connects Artvin to Erzurum. With the completion of this project, the roads leading to the Yusufeli Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant will be completed. This will also pave the way for the commissioning of the dam, which will make an important contribution to the energy needs of our country. Furthermore, the road standards will be substantially improved and valuable contributions will be made to our national economy. Construction works are progressing quickly through shifts on a 24-hour schedule on the Yusufeli–Sarıgöl–Ögdem route.
