History

The highway in the eastern part became paved in the mid-20th century. In the late 1980s as part of the highway plan to access central and northern Ilia and southwestern Arcadia. The highway was only painted from Andritsaina to Megalopoli. The highway in mid-1999 suffered a mudslide nearly 1 to 2 km SE of Krestena. It cut off roads for a few days before a narrow gravel detour was created. The highway became painted in 1999 from Andritsaina to 2 km W of Krestena.

During the 2007 Greek forest fires, the highway was shut down and the fires affected almost the whole highway with some expections: around Krestena, Karytena, near Zoni, near Thoknia and most of Megalopoli.
