The A9 highway is a highway in Lithuania (Magistraliniai keliai). It runs from Panevėžys, through Radviliškis to Šiauliai.[1] The length of the road is 78.94 kilometres. The speed limit for most of the road's length is 90 km/h. This route is a part of International E-road network (part of European route E272).

The stretch of the road between Radviliškis and Šiauliai is currently[when?] under reconstruction. The road is being upgraded to a modern expressway, with limited access and a 110 km/h speed limit. There are also plans to build an expressway to Šeduva, bypassing Radviliškis.
