The A1 highway has four lanes (two lanes each way) separated by grass line and safety rails. Most of the section from Kaunas to Klaipėda has motorway status with 130 km/h speed limit during summer and 110 km/h during winter. The section from Kaunas to Vilnius has expressway status with 120 km/h speed limit during summer and 110 km/h during winter.

Its European route code is E85 and for a short while E67 (near Kaunas).

The Vilnius–Kaunas highway was completed in 1970 and Kaunas–Klaipėda was completed in 1987. It replaced the first 40 kilometers of the Samogitian Highway stretching from Kaunas.
