The highway starts at the crossing of Leninsky Prospekt and Moscow Ring Road, passes south of Solntsevo and Vnukovo, then continues westward through Kaluga, Bryansk and Sevsk to the Ukrainian border. After crossing the border, the road continues as the Ukrainian M02 route to Kiev.[1]

The M3 is covered by the European Road E101 (Moscow-Bryansk-Hlukhiv-Kipti).
