The expressway is complete from Lanzhou to Weiyuan County in Dingxi, and under construction until Longnan. From Lanzhou the expressway enters the New Qidaoliang tunnel (length 4,070 metres (2.53 mi)) through the Xinglongshan mountains, from where it follows the Tao River parallel to G212. Past Lintao, the route diverges from the Tao river valley and passes through hilly landscape through a couple of tunnels until exiting in the Wei River valley. From there it continues Provincial Expressway 14, and the under construction section of G75 exits. In Min County, the expressway will be parallel to G212 again until Longnan, exiting Gansu through a mountainous valley by numerous tunnels and viaducts.
The expressway is complete in Chongqing.
The expressway is complete in Guizhou.
When completed, the southern terminus of the expressway will be in Haikou, Hainan. Hainan is an island and currently not connected to the rest of Mainland China by a fixed road link. A bridge is being built over the Qiongzhou Strait, separating Guangdong from Hainan and will carry the Lanzhou–Haikou Expressway to Hainan.
