Creation: Appeared Dec 1987 (AASHTO) when US 60 was placed on I-64 around the north side of Clifton Forge. This is the 2nd US 60 Business.

US 60 Business #1: Appeared in May 1958 (CTB) as a renumbering of mainline US 60 along the Virginia Beach oceanfront. It ran on Atlantic Avenue from 17th to 44th where Atlantic and Pacific Avenues came together.
It had been intended to put US 60 on one-way splits using Atlantic and Pacific but the Virginia Beach City Council requested Pacific be two-way traffic and that because of Business interests tied to the use of the 60 designation to call Atlantic Avenue 60 Business.
The CTB stated explicitly in the May 1958, April 1960, and October 1963 minutes that US 60 Business was not a primary extension and did not receive primary money.
Dale Sanderson reports that others told him the route was still posted with cutouts into the 1970s. However, by the time I moved to Virginia Beach in 1991, there were no 60 Business postings. Only a solitary US 58 cutout on Atlantic SB and a US 60 cutout on Pacific NB at Atlantic were the only indications of a primary route ever having been there.
I have yet to see a map label this US 60 Business. I also have never seen any CTB documentation decommissioning the route, although perhaps in their eyes it was never commissioned to start with. Given the horrific lack of posting of US 60 in the oceanfront area, it is not knowable whether US 60 Business exists or not.
