The Aomori Expressway (青森自動車道, Aomori Jidōsha-dō) is a two-lane national expressway in Aomori, Aomori Prefecture, Japan. It is owned and operated by East Nippon Expressway Company and is signed E4A as a direct extension of the Tōhoku Expressway.

The expressway is officially referred to as the Tōhoku Jūkan Expressway Hachinohe Route.[3]

The expressway serves as an extension to the Tōhoku Expressway (which terminates at Aomori Interchange) and runs through southern areas of the city of Aomori.[4] Though the Aomori Expressway terminates at Aomori-higashi Interchange, it is planned to eventually connect with the terminus of the Hachinohe Expressway in the city of Hachinohe via a series of toll roads.

The speed limit is 70 km/h for the entire route.
