BR-153 is the main link between Brazil's Mid-North (states of Tocantins, Maranhão, Pará and Amapá) with the country's Center-South geo-economic region. Due to this fact and in addition to the large flow of vehicles, the BR-153 is currently considered one of the main national integration roads in Brazil.
The road stretch, which starts at the junction of the BR-060 in Anápolis / GO and extends to the junction with the TO-070 (west) in Aliança do Tocantins, is 624.8 km long, 598.3 km single lane and 26.5 km of double lane with central bed, in addition to 9.2 km of marginal roads, being 2.8 km unpaved.
