Construction works (upgrading to 2x2 dual carriageway) of A14 road near Vilnius is going on well. They are now installing shiny crashbarriers

Got some time, so decided to capture some pictures from a movie.
This is about road A13 near Klaipėda.
This is a top view photo of construction - converting road from 1x2 to 2x2


And already upgraded section (2 years ago). If they would avoid doing those shitty 1 level U-Turns, it could be a pure motorway...
OT: traffic is very low, because it's ~5 a.m. in the morning

It will be 8.1 km long. And previously reconstructed - 4 km. So 12.1 km in total reconstructed road from 1x2 to 2x2
P.S. I think should be Corvette

Guys, let's stay on topic

Can someone explain to me if the road A13 Klaipeda-Palanga wil ALL (i.e. all the way from the big roundabout near Klaipeda to Palanga) be made into a 2x2?

Actually it will be. Because after reconstructing first 12km near Klaipėda, this 2x2 will be connected to existing 2x2. Check Google maps - it shows how long is 2x2 now. According to Google maps calculations it's something like ~13 km. So when current reconstruction will be finished - all road (~25 km) will be 2x2
