No, it will be a single carriageway. The intersection, visible in photos, is junction of roads A13 and A12, which is being upgraded.

Junction with A11, not A12

This is not a fresh info. However, I saw it nowhere on this forum. Yesterday I travelled from Vilnius to Daugavpils (LV). Between Utena and Zarasai, I lost an hour due to the repavement of the road. I also lost around 10 minutes just between Zarasai and the border with Latvia (notabene: only Latvians were working on this part of the road).
Today, I discovered a similar forum to SSC (some of you, Lithuanians from the forum, may already know it), and this is what I found out:

Kelias ilgesnis apie 7 km (40 km vietoje 33 km), bet neabejotinai bus sutaupyta laiko ir mašina neapdulkės.
Šį kelią jau susirado gudresni "fūrų" vairuotojai.

Važiuojant nuo Utenos į Zarasus:
- Daugailiuose (prie "Alaušos" degalinės) pasukti į kairę 178 keliu: "Antalipetė 9, Dusetos 19"
- Antalieptėje (iš karto už Šventosios tilto) pasukti į dešinę 5305 keliu: "Vencavai 9, Zarasai 31"
- Pasibaigus keliui (sankryža su 117 keliu) sukti į dešinę, Zarasų centras už 2 km

Važiuojant nuo Zarasų į Uteną:
- Miesto centrinėje Sėlių aikštėje važiuoti 117 keliu link Obelių - Rokiškio
- Už ~ 2 km posūkis į kairę 5305 kelias: "Vencavai 19"
- Antalieptėje sukti į kairę 178 keliu link Daugailių



Žemėlapio pagrindas: http://karte.zl.lv/
So guys, if you need to travel between Utena and Zarasai, just avoid the A6/E262 ... I will also try to post some pics I found on that forum, quoting them accordingly.

Personally, after that experience, I came back to Vilnius via Ignalina.

I'm not going to post all the pics, but it looked pretty much like this ... Although in some stretches, the new asphalt was already on the ground

I know the part from Vilnius to Naujieji Valkininkai (where you turn to Alytus) by heart And I always complain about this section near Trakų Vokė (0:38), but also near Gariūnai - these traffic lights sometimes induce big traffic jams. There should be a bypass for these sections, or at leas a motorway-style crossroads.

I'm surprised with the number of trees without leaves. In Vilnius, it's not like that. This weekend I'm supposed to drive a bit out of the city, so we'll see ;

Dear Lithuanian forum members (this is for those who live in Vilnius)

What is happening in this specific place on Oslo gatvė, near the Lazdynai hospital (Lazdynų Ligoninė) ? Yesterday there were some roadworks, with temporary places to make a U-turn on both directions, but I found nowhere information why ... (sorry, the pics were of too bad quality to put them here)

The Erfurto viaduct is undergoing a renovation - as far as I know, that's supposed to be the reason for the aforementioned things.

Finally some great and official news from Lithuanian road administration, regarding Via Baltica reconstruction.
Regarding lakd.lt webpage they are publishing at the moment the first tender for modernizing of current 2x2 near Kaunas to a motorway standard. Works will take place in a stretch between 17,3 and 23,4 km (From a junction of A5 and national road 130) - pedestrian bridges, noise fences will be built, 1 level junctions will be removed. After finishing those works a current dual carriageway will receive motorway standard and additional 1,4 km of 2x2 will be built while building a second overpass via railway.

This year a tender for a stretch from 35,40 to 45,15 km will be published as well. Which means during year 2015 - 2016 period, additional 10 km of a motorway will be built.
Remaining stretches between Kaunas and Marijampolė are supposed to be finished by the end of 2017.

After 2017 road works shall start in Marijampolė - Polish border stretch. Some statistics about AADT. In a stretch Kaunas - Marijampolė the road has AADT f 13242, from which 40% are trucks and stretch Marijampolė - Polish border AADT is 8573, from which trucks are 60%.

So after good news one lovely pic from We love Lithuania facebook group. This is a end of 2nd stage of Wester bypass of Vilnius (junction with Pilaitė street).

First opened motorway stretch between Kaunas-Marijampole will be second Post-Soviet grade-seperated dual-carriegeway after expressway Šiauliai-Radviliškis (A9) and first Post-Soviet modern-standard motorway, opened in Lithuania and the Baltic States.

PovilD: technically the first post soviet motorway was A2 road between Ukmergė and Panevėžys, which was finished in 1998. However nor it has a motorway sign, technically with some 1 level U-turns it fails modern motorway standards in some stretches. So yes, regarding modern-standards Kaunas-Marijampolė will be the first one Post-Soviet motorway

I would rather like to see that stretch signed by 110 km/h (not even expressway) speed limit signs more than motorway-signed There are too much U-turns so why do we need to speed-up and drop speed every 5 km?

The stretch has low AADT - 6200 and there are very few conflict situations in U-turn junctions, caused by short distance between T-junction and U-turn (only about 150 m). The most efficient way would be to renovate those junctions by making bigger distances.(like about 300 m)

Very good point ! Are there any projects of upgrading that stretch to real-motorway standards?

Well, because is not dangerous road, it will not be upgraded in foreseeable future (according to LAKD question-answer thread).

Traffic volumes are pretty low, therefore investments are not highly demanded.

New traffic code changes released and looks like that we are starting to switch from green motorway signage to blue . There will be no green signage after January 1, 2020 in Lithuania: all destination and motorway entrance/end signs will be blue.

Decision by government (Lithuanian only)

More new signs spoted:


Sign changes:

Blue motorway sign with green one:

Do you have a (Lithuanian) source for that? For example from the road authority? The legal text doesn't seem to specify it (it still shows green signs).
