The A1 highway is a highway in Lithuania. It connects the capital city of Vilnius with the port city of Klaipėda, via the second largest city, Kaunas. Its length is over 300 kilometres (190 mi), making it the longest highway in Lithuania.
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 110 km/h speed limit during summer and 100 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.
