The rebuilt 17,00 kilometer highway would connect India's northeastern state of Assam with Kunming, the capital of southwest China's Yunnan province.
The Indian portion of the road is just 61 kilometers long, with 632 kilometers in China. The major portion of the road, more than 1,000 kilometers, lies in Burma.
The road is named after American General Joseph Stilwell, who led its construction in the 1940s.
The highway was a vital lifeline for the movement of Allied Forces during World War Two as they battled to free China from Japanese occupation.
The French news agency says talks are occurring between the three countries to speed up re-opening the highway.
