 This research aims to examine the feasibility of implementing a corridor that connects the urban areas North and East to the city Center of Manaus through the Igarapé da Lavanderia, Petrópolis neighborhood, located in the south of the city. To this end, was done a dynamic system through implementation of the program Vensim PLE to determine the feasibility of deployment. For the system we used two models, the ideal model, which should be implemented, and the real ones, which make a comparison to other road projects recently executed in the city. In the first case, as expected, it was found that it is possible to deploy the corridor. In the second, due to features such as non-compliant comfort and security flaws or no other items of mobility (access ramps and walkways), congestion on access routes, costs due to unscheduled maintenance and poor preservation of the route, it was concluded, after feeding the system with the coefficients previously defined, that if not reviewed the concepts and the importance of accessibility and mobility of managers of transit and transportation, will be not technically feasible the implementation of this project.
