The Rodovia Estrada do Coco and Linha Verde, (BA-099), is a state highway which runs through the northeastern part of the state of Bahia and southeastern region of the state of Sergipe in Brazil. The road connects the city of Salvador, the capital of Bahia, to the city of Aracaju, the capital of Sergipe.
Major tourist cities of North Litoral that are connected by BA-099 are Salvador, Lauro de Freitas, Abrantes, Jauá, Arembepe, Jaquipe, Guarajuba and Itacimimrim (Linha do Côco or Coconut Line) and Praia do Forte, Imbassaí, Porto do Sauípe, Massarandupió, Subaúma, Sítio do Conde, Costa Azul, Mangue Seco (Linha Verde or Green Line).
The highway is managed and maintained by a state concession to the private company CLN (Concessionária Litoral Norte) since 2001, and therefore is a toll road. From that transfer of ownership up to today it has largely improved in road quality and safety.
