Route 1 is a national route of Uruguay. In 1975, it was assigned the name Brigadier General Manuel Oribe, a national hero of Uruguay. It connects Montevideo with Colonia del Sacramento to the west along the coast. The road is approximately 177 kilometres (110 mi) in length.
The distance notation along Route 1 uses the same Kilometre Zero reference as Routes 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and IB, which is the Pillar of Peace of Plaza de Cagancha in the Centro of Montevideo.
Route 1 crosses the Santa Lucia River on the border between the departments of Montevideo and San Jose along a modern 4-lane bridge with a length of 800 metres. It was crossed by the old 2-lane bridge opened in 1925 on the old Route 1, which still exists today and is used as a shortcut by the people of Santiago Vázquez.
