Creation: US 29 is an original US Highway that appeared in October 1931, running from Danville ro Lynchburg as a replacement for US 170 (also attached to VA 14); attached to VA 18 from Lynchburg to Woods Mill; and as an addition to VA 28 from Woods Mill to Culpeper where US 29 ended at US 15-VA 32/37 (now just Fredericksburg Rd).
US 29's designation in Virginia appears to be a product of the May 1931 CTB agreeing to "...work out a unified system of United States Route Numbers for a road leading from Danville to Warrenton..."

A closer look at US 29's original routing:
Old US 29 at the NC Line at Danville; US 29 Bus; VA 41; US 29 Business; SR 1031 Suburban Dr and SR 720 Blairs Cir in Blairs; US 29 to Chatham except Old Taylor Rd/abandoned alignment south of SR 718 Dry Fork Rd; US 29 through Tightsqueeze.
US 29 used US 29 Business through Chatham, then SR 1429; US 29; US 29 Business through Gretna; US 29, SR 988 to US 29 Business through Alta Vista; SR 712 Riverbend Rd, US 29; SR 912; US 29; SR 754 Anstey Rd, SR 738 Greenhouse Rd; US 29; US 29 Bus; VA 163 through Lynchburg to Madison Heights.
US 29 followed US 29 Bus through Amherst except SR 671 in Monroe and Faulconerville Dr at Faulconerville. North of Amherst, US 29 followed VA 151 then VA 151Y, then VA 56 east back to modern US 29 and 29 Business into Lovingston.
From Lovingston, US 29 used SR 770 Cannery Loop but otherwise modern 29 to Woods Mill. US 29 followed VA 6 west then VA 6Y east back to current US 29 which it followed pretty closely to Covesville, using Covesville Ln through the community. Then US 29 followed its current routing to about I-64, then used Teel Ln and on the other side of I-64 picked up SR 702 which becomes US 29 Business. US 29 followed that to Emmet St, then turned right and followed Emmet St to Main St. US 29 went east on Main then north on Rugby out to SR 743 which it followed to US 33.
US 29 used US 33 to SR 645 north back to current US 29 which it followed to Culpeper except used SR 631 Kirtley Rd; Mays Ln; SR 717/643 loop near Reva; US 29 Business into Culpeper.
Adjustments:By 1932, US 29 was placed on current VA 293 north of VA 41 and modern US 29 Business through Blairs.
In July 1933, VA 14, VA 18, and VA 28 were dropped from US 29.
In Oct 1934 (CTB), US 29 was removed from SR 717/643 loop west of Culpeper.
In 1934, US 29 was extended north with US 15 to Warreton then east with US 211 to Washington DC.
Also in 1934, US 29 was rerouted onto current US 29 Business and US 29 from Main St Charlottesville north past Ruckersville, leaving behind SRs 743/644 (now just 743), VA 4 (now US 33), and SR 645.

I believe US 29 was removed from SR 770 north of Lovingston in the mid-1930s.
About 1937, US 29 was given its original bypass (with US 15) around Warrenton to the west, leaving behind US 15 ALT.
It appears that US 29 was put on its modern routings at Leon and Brightwood in March 1938 (CTB), leaving behind SR 647/607 loop; SR 607/678 loop north of Brightwood; SR 631
In Oct 1947 (CTB), US 29 was put on newly constructed routing from Amherst to Colleen, leaving behind VA 151 and VA 158. The new route may have used a tiny bit of VA 150.

In Aug 1955 (CTB), US 29 was rerouted in Lynchburg to continue along Fort Ave, then south on Campbell Ave to the new completed portion of the Lynchburg Expressway, then using the new road across the James River to meet back up with the original route in Madison Heights. The old route through downtown Lynchburg became US 29 ALT (now VA 163).
In Sept 1959 (CTB), US 29 was placed on more completed Lynchburg Expressway leaving behind more US 29 ALT (now VA 163).

In April 1971 (CTB), US 29 was placed on its Brightwood Bypass leaving behind SR 607/730.
About 1971, US 29 was rerouted in Danville off of Piney Forest Rd south of Parker Rd onto new routing across the Dan River, then west on Riverside Dr. The old route had been a US 58 duplex west to Park Ave south across the Dan River.

In Oct 2005, US 29 was placed on newly constructed freeway from the south end of the Amherst Bypass to US 460 east of Falwell Airport. US 29 now follows US 460 west to meet back up with US 29 near Lynchburg Airport. The freeway from US 460 to VA 210 opened in Dec 2004. The old route past Sweet Briar College and through Madison Heights became part of a very long US 29 Business.
Improvements:  Upon designation in 1931, US 29 was fully paved everywhere except from Ruckersville to the Rapidan River, which was corrected when US 29 moved to modern routing there in 1934.

In 1958, US 29 was multilaned from S. Rivanna River to SR 649.
In 1960 or 1961, US 29 was 4-laned from the Bannister River through Chatham; Whittles through Gretna; Lynchburg Expwy south of the James River; VA 120 to VA 124; also incorrectly shown to be 4-laned undivided through Manassas Battlefield (until 1975 issue on insets; 1981 on the main maps).
In 1962, US 29 was 4-laned from VA 120 west to VA 237 Falls Church.
In 1963, US 29 was multilaned from NC line to today's VA 293; the 1960 widening through Chatham was redrawn to be from SR 718 to the Bannister River and not through Chatham; the 1960 widening from Whittles to Gretna was redrawn to be Whittles south to what is now the north end of the Chatham BYpass.

The only mainline US 29 cutouts thought to be remaining are in Falls Church. The Madison Bypass cutout set was replaced in 2012.
A VA 29 shield existed briefly on US 60 WB at the Amherst Bypass but has been corrected. A bonus error - in 2003 I spotted FL 29 shields in Pensacola. There is an erroneous Seminole Trail sign SB near VA 215 which is north of its legislative end in Warrenton.

Comments: One of the three most important non-interstates in Virginia (with US 58 and US 460).
US 29 is posted as future I-785 corridor south of US 58-360. Thoughts of extending I-785 further north to Lynchburg exist and this wouldn't be all that difficult. Thoughts of continuing this to Charlottesville are crazy as this would be difficult terrain.
VDOT would like to 4-lane US 29 through the Manassas Battlefield to alleviate traffic woes but the National Park Service is against this. A plan has surfaced to route it and VA 234 around the north of the Battlefield.
In the 30's and 40's there was a VA 29 loop similar to the US 360-VA 360 setup between Culpeper and Warrenton.

US 29 ALT  Decommissioned
Previous US 29 ALT's: US 29 ALT #1: Appeared in 1936. Originally began at US 29-VA 86 jct in South Danville and ran north across the river along Worsham St. It met up again with US 29 (curr VA 293) just south of US 360 (curr VA 360). It is unclear how US 29 ALT ran from its south end as there is no obvious route to do this now.
In 1938 US 29 ALT was extended south to meet US 29 a mile below VA 86. This routing is certain. It now began at today's VA 293 at Howeland Circle, then east on Howeland Circle to Avondale Dr east which becomes Watson St, then Stokes St at VA 86. US 29 ALT followed Stoke St to Jefferson St north to Green St east becoming Newton St, then west on Bridge St to Wilson St/Worsham St across the river to US 29 (now VA 293) near US 360.
This US 29 ALT was eliminated by June 1941 (CTB) which references US 29 ALT on the original Danville Bypass.
US 29 ALT #2: Created by Jan 1941 (CTB) in the Danville area. This was a bypass on the west side of Danville. It ran from the original US 29-VA 125 jct (now VA 293 at Bishop Ave) south of town to US 29 (curr VA 293) north of VA 41. All of this was a replacement of what had briefly been part of VA 125.
In May 1943 (CTB), US 29 ALT was removed from Bishop Rd and instead used Memorial Dr southwest to a new ending at US 29 (now VA 293).
In Dec 1970 (CTB), US 29 ALT was renumbered as mainline US 29. Today it is US 29 Business except US 29 ALT used Piedmont Dr to cross the Dan River and used US 58 and Old Riverside Dr to Piney Forest Rd north.

US 29 ALT #3: Appeared in 1945 or 1946. The 1946 Official suggests it could have followed US 460 or US 501 over to Fort Ave from US 29 in Lynchburg. US 29 ALT then followed 12th to Main west back to US 29 at its bridge over th James River.
Definitely by 1947, US 29 ALT was using Fort Ave itself to connect with US 29 on its south end.
Oddly, 12th to Main was placed into the primary system in July 1939 (CTB) as part of VA 128 which was never shown on maps until 1956.
Maps in 1952 begin showing US 29 ALT as one-way NB and US 29 one-way SB.
In Aug 1955 (CTB), US 29 ALT was extended to Madison Heights to the current VA 163 north end, as US 29 moved to the Lynchburg Expwy over the James River, and continued the one-way alignments (NB used the previous 29 ALT, SB used today's US 29 Bus).
In 1956, it appears US 29 ALT was running only on Memorial and 5th in Lynchburg.
In Sept 1959 (CTB), US 29 ALT was extended south to the current VA 163 south end, as US 29 was placed on more Lynchburg Expwy.
About 1971, US 29 ALT was renumbered as US 29 Business. Today it is VA 163.
