National Roads in Latvia

A1 A3

The A2 is a national road in Latvia connecting Riga to Estonian border (Veclaicene), also known as Vidzeme highway in Latvia. The road is part of European route E77 and Latvian TEN-T road network. After the border, the road turns in to Estonian National Highway 7, and then in Russia to A212 leading until Pskov. The length of A2 in Latvian territory is 196 kilometers. Currently A2 has 2x2 lanes from Riga until Sēnīte, and after that it turns to 1x1 lanes. A2 is one of the first 2x2 roads in Latvia, and also one of the busiest roads in Latvia, especially between Riga and Sigulda. It was planned that in 2011 reconstruction of A2 between Riga and Senīte would start, thus converting it in to a motorway. The plans were canceled due to economic crisis. The current speed limit is 90 km/h. The average AADT on A2 in 2016 was 12 550 cars per day.
