With a total investment of 34.301 billion yuan ($5.08 billion), the expressway spans 39.2 kilometers, linking the Shanghai-Shaanxi Expressway (G40) in Haimen district of Nantong with the Shanghai-Wuhan Expressway (G4221) in Taicang of Suzhou.

There will be five interchanges and one service center along the two-way, six-lane expressway.

The expressway will include an 11.2-km tunnel that goes under the Yangtze River.

The construction of the expressway is of great importance to implementing the Yangtze River Delta region integration and the Yangtze River Economic Belt, improving regional expressway network, and promoting city cluster construction along Yangtze River.
