Creation: VA 101 became a primary route in a mileage swap with the decommissioned portion of VA 116 in June 1969 (CTB). The CTB had rejected upgrading SR 625 Hershburger Rd to Primary status in Apr 1969. The number 101 was not chosen until "a later date" (no later than July 1970 based on CTB references to construction on the route). This is the 5th VA 101.
Adjustments: None
Improvements:  Paved upon inception;
VA 101 was multilaned from VA 116 to US 11 (including expressway between I-581 and Valley View Blvd) in 1986.
VA 101 from VA 117 to VA 116 is still 2-lane today.

Comment:Serves as the main access to the Roanoke airport.
1960s-era transportation plans for the Roanoke area proposed a freeway-grade VA 101 running from US 11 near the airport over to VA 419 in Salem, which itself was proposed as a limited-access arterial. The interchange at Valley View Blvd (serving the airport) is the only constructed part of this unbuilt freeway proposal.

VA 101 #1: Appeared in June 1923 (CTB) as new primary routing, running from VA 10 (either 24th St or 17th St) Virginia Beach north 3.5 miles to Fort Story.
In June 1926 (CTB), VA 101 was extended west 7.3 miles towards Lynnhaven Inlet as an upgrade to CR 1.
In March 1927 (CTB), VA 101 was extended west 2.41 miles.
In Aug 1928, VA 101 was renumbered as VA 500. Today it is US 60 except it used the old VA 305 around Cape Henry and along the oceanfront VA 101 used Atlantic Ave.
1927 and 1928 Officials erroneously show VA 101 curling southwest back to Norfolk. However, the current US 13 corridor was not put into the system until Aug 1928. VA 101's furthest reach was just to the west of the Lynnhaven Inlet.
VA 101 #2: Appeared Aug 1928 as an upgrade to CR 4, running from US 411/VA 10 (now US 58 Bus) Ewing south to the Tennessee Line. The 1928-29 Officials erroneously show the road going to Rose Hill.
In July 1933, VA 101 was renumbered as VA 62. Today it is SR 744.

In Nov 1942 (CTB), VA 101 east was truncated to and replaced by VA 100 (now F047 and a little SR 658). VA 101's new eastern endpoint was just southeast of today's I-81/US 11/VA 100 interchange.
In Nov 1962 (CTB), VA 101 became F-047 west of VA 100Y. East of VA 100Y was obliterated by the new VA 100 approach to I-81.
VA 101 #4: Appeared Nov 1962 (CTB) as new construction. Ran from I-81/VA 100 north to US 11 (curr F-044).
About 1965, VA 101 became part of US 11.

Creation: Appeared in March 1958 (CTB) as a renumbering of VA 85. Had the same endpoints as it does now. This is the 4th VA 102.
Adjustments: Between 1962-75, VA 102 was rerouted in Bluefield to a more direct route across the railroad. It left College Av and went west a block (with a rerouted US 19-460) on Virginia Ave then north on Walnut, then east on Graham back to College Av north under the railroad. Originally it had used Graham St east to Depot St to Thayer St.
Sometime after 1975, VA 102 was removed from its US 19-460 duplex by remaining on College Av straight through.
In March 2000 (CTB), VA 102 was put on newly constructed alignment north of Bluefield, leaving behind SRs 842 and 843.
Improvements:  Paved upon designation; no multilane segments
Posted:  Fully posted except the turn from College Dr onto Stadium Dr is not marked. Stadium Dr onto College Ave is marked with a cutout, however.
Two other cutouts were still up as of 2009
Triangle shaped cutouts exist at US 19
Interstate-shaped cutouts are sprinkled througout Bluefield and go back to the early-2000s at least.

VA 102 #1: Appeared in June 1923 (CTB) as an upgrade to CR 8, running from VA 10 (now the VDOT Maint yard at SR 613) Weber City south to the Tennessee State Line.
In Aug 1928, VA 102 was renumbered as VA 108. Today it is US 23 except it used the SR 727 loop near the state line.
VA 102 #2: Appeared in Aug 1928 as an upgrade to CR 9, running from US 411/VA 10 (now US 58) Cony Hollow south 6.16 miles.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 102 south was extended to the Tennessee Line.
In July 1933, VA 102 was renumbered as VA 63. Today it is SR 758.
VA 102 #3: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 210, running from US 11 (now SR 688 Auburn Ave) Radford south to US 221 Willis, then after a duplex with US 221 to Shelors Mill, VA 102 continued south to end at US 58 Meadows of Dan. There was a break in routing around the Floyd-Patrick Line.
In Aug 1933 (CTB), the 4.4 mile gap was closed in VA 102.
In March 1934 (CTB), VA 102 was officially moved from SR 726 Shelors Mill to today's SR 799 Willis. The decision to do this occurred in 1932 while the route was still VA 210 TEMP (the '33 Official showed the move, too), but the official mileage transfer didn't occur until now.
In Jan 1937 (CTB), VA 102 was extended north along Auburn Ave and Tyler Ave to end at US 11. This was a replacement for what had become US 11 ALT.

In Apr 1951 (CTB), the rest of VA 102 was designated to revert to secondary status when primary funds allocated were depleted.
In Oct 1954 (CTB), VA 102 was downgraded to SR 787. In Radford, VA 102 used Rock Rd east to Auburn then northwest into Radford. The Tyler Ave portion of VA 102 is now part of VA 177.
SR 787 is seriously twisty in its Willis to Radford portion. Near Meadows of Dan there is now a brief duplex with the Blue Ridge Pkwy.

Creation: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of part of VA 200 and all of VA 220, running generally the way it does today. This is the 3rd VA 103.
Adjustments: In 1941 (CTB), VA 103 was essentially rebuilt from the NC Line to east of SR 773.
In June 1975 (CTB), VA 103's east end was moved south to its current location. The old approach became SR 864 and some abandoned routing.
In Feb 1979 (CTB), VA 103 was straightened out a little west of VA 8, leaving behind a 1 mile abandoned loop.
Improvements:  The first piece of VA 103 to be paved was the easternmost couple miles, in 1937.
In 1938, VA 103 was paved from VA 8 to then-VA 104
The rest of VA 103 was paved in 1939.
VA 103 has no multilane segments.

VA 103 #1: Appeared 1923 as a renumbering of VA 12W, running from VA 10 (curr VA 337) Suffolk south to the NC Line. VA 103 used White Marsh Rd down to VA 32 originally.
In Aug 1923 (CTB), VA 103 was rerouted to use Saratoga St and Fayette Rd; VA 32 to the NC Line except around the US 13 split it used Old Somerton Rd and Airport Rd.
In Aug 1928, VA 103 was renumbered as VA 505.
VA 103 is misidentified as VA 12 on the 1923 Official.
VA 103 #2: Appeared in Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 1010, running from US 411/VA 10 (now US 58 ALT) Jonesville south to about Blackwater, then extended as new primary routing to the Tennessee Line.piece was created as an upgrade to CR 3, running from VA 121 (now SR 865) Fremont south 7.11 miles.
In 1932, VA 103 replaced VA 105 from Dot southwest to just short of Jonesville. I believe in this process VA 103 between today's VA 70 north end and today's US 58-58 ALT jct became VA 103Y.
In July 1932, VA 103 was extended northwest along VA 10 from Dot to Pennington Gap, then northeast replacing CR 3 through Dryden towards VA 11 (now SR 642). Why wasn't this an extension of VA 104???
In July 1933, VA 103 was renumbered as VA 64 from Jonesville to Tennessee (now VA 70 below Powell River and SR 864/abandoned alignments north of the river); US 58 from Jonesville to Dot; VA 65 from Dot to Pennington Gap (now US 421 and SR 785); VA 66 from Pennington Gap towards Dryden (now US 58 ALT).
VA 103 is mislabeled as VA 203 on Gousha maps between Pennigton Gap and Dryden.

VA 104 #1: Appeared in 1923 as new primary routing, running from VA 10 (now US 460 Bus) Appomattox northeast to Vera.
In March 1924 (CTB), VA 104 was extended northeast 5 miles.
In June 1926 (CTB), VA 104 was extended northeast 9.2 miles to VA 13 (now US 60) Mt Rush, then duplexed with VA 13 to Buckingham C.H.
In March 1927 (CTB), VA 104 was extended south 4 miles from Appomattox.
There is evidence in the Aug 1928 CTB that VA 104 replaced VA 202 from Charlotte C.H. to Drakes Branch in 1928.
In Aug 1928, VA 104 was renumbered as part of VA 304 from Darkes Branch to Charlotte C.H. (now VA 47); VA 306 from south of Appomattox to Mt. Rush (now SR 604, SR 727, VA 131, VA 24); VA 13 from Mt. Rush to Buckingham (now US 60).

In June 1941 (CTB), VA 104's east end was moved to Claudeville. The old route to VA 103 became SR 738.
In Apr 1949, the CTB designated VA 104 to be downgraded to secondary status. Patrick County objected and was given an audience with the CTB, which in Oct 1949 reaffirmed their decision and VA 104 became SR 773.
VA 104 #4: Designated in Nov 1962 (CTB) to cover the construction of a road from I-64/464 southwest to US 17 south of Deep Creek. This included a duplex with existing VA 166.
In Dec 1962, the CTB deferred action on renumbering VA 104 as VA 464.
In Aug 1965 (CTB), VA 104 was put into the primary system from US 17 to VA 190.
The 1968 Official shows VA 104 completed from VA 190 to US 13 Military Hwy.
In Dec 2001 (CTB), VA 104 was dropped from I-464 between US 13 and I-64 and was renumbered as US 17 south of there.
VA 104 was also signed on its northern beginning from US 17 NB as "Ocean Hiway" in a US route shield in the 1980s.
VA 104 was one of the earliest non-interstate routes to have mile markers on it.

Comment:  VA 105 provides direct access to Fort Eustis from I-64 and US 17 Yorktown area.
VA 105 is considered a "limited access route". Some of the early '80s Hampton Roads insets on the VDOT map showed it as a blue line (limited access), though recent map insets don't.
An extension east to VA 173/Goodwin Neck Rd is proposed as SR 1050, which has been built over to SR 634.
VA 105 didn't appear on officials until 1975.

In 1926, VA 105 replaced VA 119 from VA 11 (now US 19-460 Bus) Frog Level to Liberty, then duplexed with VA 11 to Tazewell, then replaced VA 117 north to the West Virginia line at Bishop.
In June 1926 (CTB), VA 105 was extended northeast 6.6 miles. Also, the Tazewell County piece was extended south 5.5 miles.
In March 1927 (CTB), the original VA 105 segment was extended north 0.5 miles and the northern piece was extended south 6 miles.
In Aug 1928, both pieces of VA 105 were renumbered as VA 112. Today it is VA 91 below Tazewell except it used VA 91 Bus and SR 1309 through Glade Spring. ABove Tazewell it is part of VA 16.

In Jan 1987 (CTB), VA 106 was extended with VA 156 into Charles City COunty, then replaced SRs 609 and SR 605 to end at VA 249. Around the Roxbury area this had once been part of VA 163.
Improvements:  paved upon inception; multilane on its VA 10 duplex when assigned there in 1987.
In the early 2010s, VA 106 was widened to 4 lanes from just north of I-64 to VA 249 as part of a real estate development.
Posted:  Fully posted; In the 90s there was a circle 106 shield north of VA 5.

Scenic Byway:  No segments
Comment:  The above-mentioned real estate development included three roundabouts along VA 106, including one at the VA 106/VA 249/SR 609 junction.
The CTB extended VA 106 to provide a continuous number to connect New Kent/Charles City to Prince George/Petersburg. How many people make this movement anyway...?

VA 106 #1: Appeared in 1923 as a renumbering of VA 10Y, running from VA 10 (now US 11) Abingdon to VA 11 (now VA 71) Dickensonville.
In Jan 1925 (CTB), VA 106 was extended with VA 11 briefly, then south 5.5 miles as new primary routing.
In 1927, US 19 was assigned to VA 106 from Abingdon to Hansonville.
In Aug 1928, VA 106 became VA 110. Today it is VA 75 (except SR 802/677 loop and Green Spring Rd into Abingdon and US 58 ALT except SR 766 near Abingdon; SR 633 loop at Butts; SR 775 at Greendale; SR 876/802 at Holton.
VA 106 #2: Appeared in Aug 1928 as a replacement for VA 116 from US 411/VA 10 (now SR 600) Clinchport north to Big Stone Gap, a duplex with VA 11 to Appalachia, and replaced VA 115 northwest into Kentucky.
About 1930, US 23 was assigned to the entirety of VA 106.
In 1932, US 23 was removed from the segment of VA 106 running from Appalachia to Kentucky.
In July 1933 (CTB), VA 106 was renumbered as VA 67 from Kentucky to Appalachia (now all of VA 160 and a bit of VA 68); US 23 remained designated to the rest. Today the US 23 section is US 23-58-421; SR 872, SR 871, SR 864, SR 856; mainly US 23 up to Ironton (used SR 867 and 868 loops; SR 846 loop; SR 844); SR 609 to East Stone Gap; SR 613 over to Big Stone Gap; US 23 Bus to Appalachia.
VA 106 #3: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 201, running from US 311 (now US 220 Bus) Ridgeway southeast to the NC Line near Eden, NC.
In Oct 1940 (CTB), VA 106 was renumbered as VA 87. Today it tiny part of VA 87 which has been rebuilt. VA 106 followed today's SRs 750 and 835.

Creation:  Appeared in Jan 1961 (CTB) as an upgrade to SR 636, running from US 11 Chilhowie to SR 610 near Quarry. This is the 4th VA 107.
Adjustments: In Jan 1966 (CTB), VA 107 was extended to VA 91 Saltville as new construction.
In Oct 1966 (CTB), VA 107 was straightened out in the Quarry area, leaving behind SR 773 and also SR 617 Horseshoe Bend Dr/Sparks Ln.
In Aug 1968 (CTB), the south end of VA 107 was moved from the east edge of Chilhowie (leaving behind SR 774 Lyons Gap Rd) to its current route opposite SR 762. This was partially new construction and partially an upgrade to SR 639.
In Nov 1968 (CTB), VA 107 was extended south to I-81 replacing SR 762 (was once VA 79).
In June 1970 (CTB), the Cumberland Plateau Planning District requested VA 107 be expanded to "tie together the reecreation areas of Mt. Rogers, Clinch Mtn Wildlife Management Area and Breaks Interstate Park." My speculation is that it would've used some of SR 613 through Allison Gap plus new construction to tie into US 19 near VA 80 Rosedale. Southward, it would've used SR 762 and SR 600 down to US 58.
The June 1972 CTB mentions Smyth County Board of Supervisors passing a resolution to extend VA 107 over SR 762 to SR 600.

Creation:  Appeared July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 202, running from US 311/VA 57 (now Church St) Martinsville northeast via Walnut St and Franklin St to VA 40 Penhook. This is the 3rd VA 108.
Adjustments:  In Dec 1938 (CTB), VA 108 was removed from SR 714 College Dr.
In Nov 1940 (CTB), VA 108 was rebuilt in Franklin County in several places leaving a bunch of aandoned alignments plus an extended SR 630.
In Aug 1949 (CTB), VA 108 was rerouted in Martinsville to begin at Church St, using Moss Street from Church Street to Fayette Street; thence along Fayette, Jones and Liberty Streets to Franklin Street.
In May 1952 (CTB), VA 108 north was truncated to its current end in Figgsboro, replaced by SR 890.
In Sept 1972, Henry County unsuccessfully lobbied the CTB to re-extend VA 108 back to VA 40.
In Feb 1974 (CTB), VA 108 was removed from SR 988 Appletree Cir.
In July 1974, Franklin County also unsuccessfully lobbied the CTB to re-extend VA 108 back to VA 40.
In Nov 1990 (CTB), VA 108 south was truncated to and replaced by VA 174.
Improvements:  Paved upon inception out to Snow Creek
In 1940, VA 108 was paved out to VA 41 (now SR 969).
In 1948, VA 108 was paved from VA 41 to VA 40.

Comment:  Figsboro is not exactly a huge place so I don't know why VA 108 was retained all these years.
The SR 890 continuation to VA 40 is a pretty good road and wouldn't need any work to put back in the system if traffic ever warranted it.

VA 110 #1: Appeared Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 106, running from VA 11 (now VA 71) Dickensonville through Hansonville and Abingdon before ending 5 miles south. Hansonville to Abingdon was also US 19.
In Aug 1929 (CTB), VA 110 was extended south 3.12 miles.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 110 was extended south 3.24 more miles, to be 0.14 miles short of the Tennessee State lIne.
In July 1933, VA 110 was renumbered as VA 71 from Dickensonville to Hansonville (now US 58 ALT); US 19 remained from Hansonville to Abingdon (except SR 766 near Abingdon; SR 633 loop at Butts; SR 775 at Greendale; SR 876/802 at Holton.) ; Main St in Abingdon remained US 11; south to nearly Tennessee became VA 77 (now VA 75 except used Green Spring Rd in Abingdon and the SR 902/677 loop).
VA 110 was not labeled on official maps north of Abingdon but is shown on the 1932 Russell County Map.
VA 110 #2: Created July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 211, running from VA 102 (now an old alignment of Rock Rd) Radford to VA 8 Riner.
In May 1946 (CTB), VA 110 was downgraded to SR 658. Today, I-81 cuts off old VA 110. North of I-81 the road is now a piece of 7 Mile Tree Rd; SR 666; SR 600; VA 177; abandoned routing near Rock Rd (off the SW corner of VA 177-Rock Rd jct).
VA 110 #3: Created June 1947 (CTB) - "Beginning at a point on Henry Street just south of the intersection of First Street, thence over a proposed new location and new route to the intersection of Washington and Second Streets; thence over Second Street to the dead end at the Potomac River" (0.29 miles total)
Thus, VA 110 was unbuilt from US 1 to the George Washington Memorial Parkway, and existed on 2nd St from GW Pkwy east to the Potomac River.
VA 110 was cancelled in March 1956 (CTB). The CTB indicates 0.16 miles (presumably 2nd St) was to stop receiving primary mileage payments. The March 1956 CTB also indicated the cancellation was because a proposed Potomac River Bridge would be built elsewhere.

In 1936, VA 111 was placed on new alignment east of Depot St, leaving behind a wavy routing very close to the railroad tracks.
At some point (my guess is when US 460 Bypass of christiansburg was built in late 1960s) after 1958, VA 111's west end was reconfigured to today's endpoint, leaving behind Palmer St.

There are innumerable abandoned alignments of US 460 on the big curves following various mountain streams.
VA 111 #2: Appeared Aug 1928 as a two piece route: US 11/VA 10 Cedarville to Meadowview (renumbering of VA 125), then continued replacing CR 2 for a total of 5 miles; new primary routing from US 19/VA 11 Elk Garden south 3 miles.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), the northern piece was extended south 2.61 miles to the Washington County line, then south 7 more miles.
In 1932, VA 111 north was extended east with US 19 to Rosedale, then replaced VA 125 northwest through Honaker and after a gap through Haysi.
In July 1932, VA 111 was extended south from US 11 to VA 112 (now old VA 91 loop) Rock Spring Church. This had been VA 125 until 1928.
Also in July 1932, VA 111 was extended north 6.06 miles from its Haysi north end towards Kentucky and the south end of the Haysi piece was extended southeast to the Dickenson County line.
In July 1933, all parts of VA 111 were renumbered as VA 80. Today it is SR 803 southeast of US 11; VA 80 over to US 19; abandoned alignment to the north of 19 to Rosedale; the route from Honaker south to the Holston River ran to the west of today's VA 80 using a bit of SR 672 and Clover Rd but is mostly not a road today; VA 80 to near Breaks; SR 609/768 loop at Breaks.

About 1927, US 19 was added to the entirety of VA 112.
In Aug 1928, VA 112 was renumbered as VA 131. Today it is US 19 up to SR 674, then abandoned alignment on the north side to Sunset Dr; US 19; SR 841 (except used SR 758 loop) to US 19 Bus; tiny bit of 19 Bus; Gilbert St

Also in Aug 1928 (per Feb 1930 CTB), VA 125 from Cedarville southeast to Rock Spring Church was removed from the state highway system by act of legislature, in exchange for VA 112 being established from Old Glade Spring to VA 12 (now SR 762) Lodi.
In July 1933, VA 112 was renumbered as VA 81. Today it is VA 91 below Tazewell except it used VA 91 Bus and SR 1309 through Glade Spring. Through and above Tazewell it is VA 16.
VA 112 #3: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 224, running from VA 8 (now SR 783) Maybrook north to Mountain Lake.

1. US 460 (now SR 603) Bonsack north 0.70 mile
2. US 11 near Cloverdale, north though Daleville wrapping northwest over to Catawba and Blacksburg, before ending a mile short of Prices Fork.
This is the 3rd VA 114.

1933 Official

Adjustments:  In Oct 1935 (CTB), VA 12 (later US 220) was added to the Daleville to US 11 segment of VA 114. Per the 1943 VDOT County Atlas, VA 114 remained on this segment.
In May 1938 (CTB), VA 114 was extended west to US 11 Fairlawn as an upgrade to SR 604.
In April 1944 (CTB), the Bonsack piece of VA 114 was downgraded to SR 604 (now partially VA 220 ALT).
In May 1945 (CTB), VA 114 was removed from Prices Fork Rd (became SR 658 which is now US Army abandoned road; SR 685; VA 412; Turner St) and the Radford Ammunition Dump and placed on VA 8 south to about Belmont, then on Peppers Ferry Rd (upgrade to SR 658).
Also in May 1945 (CTB), VA 114 east was truncated to VA 311 near Catawba, leaving behind SR 779 and its US 220 duplex.
In May 1950 (CTB), VA 114 east was truncated to US 460 Belmont, leaving behind its US 460 duplex to Blacksburg and SR 785 over to VA 311 Catawba. In Blacksburg VA 114 used Roanoke St, Owens St and Harding Ave east from Main St.
In 2002, VA 114 was extended east to the new US 460 Bypass.

In 1936, VA 114 was paved a few miles west of VA 311; 5 miles northwest of Daleville
In 1939, VA 114 was paved from Blacksburg to Ellett; VA 320 to Botetourt Line
In 1940, VA 114 was paved in Pulaski County; Catawba west to Montgomery Line
Between 1942-44, VA 114 was paved from New River to Prices Fork
In 1949, VA 114 was paved from Ellett to the Roanoke Line.
VA 114 is first shown as multilane on the 1976 Official, from US 11 to the Army Dump entrance.
VA 114 was multilaned from just west of US 460 Bus to US 460 Bypass about 2002.

Comment:  VA 114 is technically posted east from the 460 Bypass to the unnumbered frontage road nearby. Perhaps it will be extended to I-73 someday?
VA 114's WB lanes over the New River, using the original 1930s bridge, was closed to traffic in the early 2000s when a truck hit the overhead structure causing big expensive damage. This returned VA 114 to two-way traffic over the newer EB bridge.
The old VA 114 alignment west of Blacksburg is mostly multilaned now. SR 785 is narrow and twisty and fun to drive; SR 779 is also narrow and twisty in Roanoke County. The Botetourt County segment is much more like a state route as a major quarry is served west of Daleville.

In July 1932 (CTB), the two pieces of VA 115 were connected as an upgrade to CR 11.
Also in July 1932, a new piece of VA 115 was born, running from US 21/VA 26 near Favonia, southwest 3.84 miles towards Rural Retreat.
In July 1933, Cedar Springs north through Rural Retreat plus the separate piece to Favonia became VA 90 and Cedar Springs through Speedwell and east towards Austinville plus the Austinville-Poplar camp piece became VA 91. Today, this is SR 680; VA 90; SR 749; SR 684; SR 690; a bit of SR 619; VA 69.

In June 1969 (CTB), VA 116 north was truncated to VA 101, leaving behind SR 780. This was a mileage exchange to create current VA 101. See scan under VA 101 entry.
Also in June 1969, Franklin County requested VA 116 be extended south over SR 670 to VA 40 near Union Hall.
Improvements:  Paved upon designation from Hanging Rock trhough Roanoke
VA 116 was paved to the BRP location in 1934.
VA 116 was paved from VA 122 north a couple miles in 1938.
The rest of VA 116 was paed in 1939.
The first portion of VA 116 to be multiloaned was from 11th Ave east to US 11, in 1963.
The Jefferson Ave/Williamson Rd is shown as multilane starting in 1988 but I'm pretty sure it was multilaned before that.

Comment:  VA 116 is blown off by the Blue Ridge Pkwy and also I-581 in southern downtown.
The mountain crossing into Franklin County is short but gnarly.
VA 116 has a lot of turns in Roanoke and its duplexing nature seems excessive just to keep the bit on Lafayette and Cove in the primary system.

VA 116 #1: Appeared in May 1923 (CTB) in two pieces: new primary routing from VA 11 (now US 23 Bus) Big Stone Gap southeast 6 miles via East Stone Gap. Also, replacing VA 10 SPUR from VA 10 (current SR 600) Clinchport north 2 miles towards Natural Tunnel.
In Jan 1925 (CTB), VA 116 was extended 4.5 miles into Lee County.
The 1926 Official shows and describes on its route log that VA 116 is fully complete between Clinchport and Big Stone Gap. I cannot find CTB references for 10 of the miles. I have a feeling the State Legislature assigned some of this routing in 1922 or 1923.
In Aug 1928, VA 116 was renumbered as VA 106. Today it is US 23-58-421; SR 872, SR 871, SR 864, SR 856; mainly US 23 up to Ironton (used SR 867 and 868 loops; SR 846 loop; SR 844); SR 609 to East Stone Gap; SR 613 over to Big Stone Gap
VA 116 #2: Appeared Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 121 from VA 12 (now VA 94-274 jct) to Providence Church, then new routing north to Fries.
In Aug 1929 (CTB), VA 116 was extended 0.75 miles.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 116 was renumbered as VA 58. Today it is the VA 94 corridor which has been largely rebuilt south of Fries. VA 116 used SRs 815 and 816 among alignments still open.
VA 116 #3: Appeared Dec 1930 (CTB) as new routing, running from US 121/VA 15 (now SR 719) Poplar Camp west to Austinville.

Creation:  Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 208 from either US 11 College Ave or VA 311 (now Craig St) Salem to US 11 northeast of Roanoke. This is the 4th VA 117.
Adjustments:  About 1947, VA 117 was truncated to Melrose Ave, replaced by US 460.
In May 1966 (CTB), VA 117 was placed on new alignment northeast of Roanoke Airport, leaving behind Barns Ave and an extended VA 118. This may have actually happened as early as 1962 as officials show multilaning on the entirety of VA 117. See scan under VA 118 entry.
In Sept 1998 (CTB), VA 117 was extended south to US 11 as new construction.

Creation:  Appeared in July 1933 (CTB) as a renumbering of VA 221 as an arrow-straight route from US 11 to VA 117 east of the Roanoke Airport. This is the 3rd VA 118.
Adjustments:  In March 1959 (CTB), VA 118 was rerouted through its tunnel under the Roanoke Airport to end at VA 117 which was still using Barns Ave. The original approach to VA 117 was partially destroyed by the runway and a little remains as Wood Haven Rd south of Barns Ave (then-VA 117).
In May 1966 (CTB), VA 118 north was extended over VA 117 to the current VA 117 routing.
In Oct 1985 (CTB), VA 118 was rerouted on its south end to no longer meet US 11 at VA 101, leaving behind Cross Rd.

VA 118 #1: Appeared in March 1924 (CTB) as new primary routing, running from Council 6 miles towards Honaker. This was not connected to any other part of the system.
In Jan 1925 (CTB), a second piece of VA 118 appeared from VA 11 (now Old Rosedale Hwy) Rosedale northwest 7 miles.
In May 1926 (CTB), the two pieces of VA 118 were connected at Honaker.
In Aug 1928, VA 118 was renumbered as VA 125. Today it is VA 80 except the route from Honaker south to the Holston River ran to the west of today's VA 80 using a bit of SR 672 and Clover Rd but is mostly not a road today
VA 118 #2: Appeared in Aug 1928 as new primary routing, running from VA 116 (now SR 816) Providence Church west 4.53 miles. See scan under VA 116.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 118 was extended west 5.10 miles.
In July 1932 (CTB), VA 118 was extended west to US 21/VA 26 near Elk Creek.
In July 1933, VA 118 was renumbered as VA 95. Today it is SR 806.
Early officials suggest VA 118 ended very close to Fries but that appears to be in error.

VA 119 #1: Appeared in April 1924 (CTB) as new primary routing, running from VA 11 (now US 19-460 Bus) Frog Level southwest to Liberty. See scan under VA 117 #1 entry.
The Apr 1926 CTB preliminarily extended VA 119 south 5.5 miles but was renumbered as VA 105 when this action was confirmed in May 1926 CTB. Today it is VA 91.
VA 119 #2: Appeared in May 1926 (CTB) as new routing, running from VA 1141 (now VA 83) Pound 4 miles towards Wise C.H.
In March 1927 (CTB), VA 119 was extended south 8.7 more miles.
In Jan 1928 (CTB), VA 119 was extended south to Wise C.H.

VA 119 #4: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of part of VA 22. Initially it began at US 311 (now US 220-220 bus jct) south of Roanoke, then followed today's VA 419, then SR 904 to Starkey. VA 119 then used SR 897 over to US 221. VA 119 duplexed with US 221 north to Old Cave Spring Rd, then northwest on today's McVitty Rd which dances with VA 419 a ways. VA 119 followed McVitty to US 11 (just west of current VA 419) then used East Riverside Dr to curl northwest back around to end at US 11 Colorado Ave. See scan under VA 116 entry.
In Aug 1960 (CTB), VA 119 was rerouted in Salem. At US 11, VA 119 now duploexed east across the Roanoke River, then was sent north on the new Electric Ave and also replaced a bit of SR 1404 to end at US 11 ALT-460 ALT. Official maps continued to show VA 119 on Riverside Dr through its renumbering in 1964.
In Sept 1964 (CTB), VA 119 was renumbered as VA 419.

In 1964, VA 120 was removed from Old Glebe Rd near Military Rd in northern Arlington County. Old Glebe Rd wasn't removed from the state highway system officially until Apr 1972 (CTB).
Improvements:  Paved upon designation;
VA 120 was multilaned from 21st St to VA 244 in 1951
In 1953, VA 120 was multilaned from S. Glebe Rd to 21st St; also from US 50 to Washington Blvd.
In 1954, VA 120 was multilaned from VA 244 to US 50.
In 1957, VA 120 was multilaned from Washington Blvd to US 29-211.
In 1960 or 1961, VA 120 was multilaned from S. Glebe Rd to Mt Vernon Rd
In 1963, VA 120 was multilaned from Mt Vernon Rd to US 1.
In 1965, VA 120 was multilaned from US 29-211 to VA 309.
In 1968, VA 120 was widened from VA 309 to Williamsburg Blvd
In 1974, VA 120 was widened from Williamsburg Blvd to Military Rd

Comment:  VA 120 essentially splits Arlington County in half.
The 2-lane portion is narrow and winding, giving a mountain drive feel in the midst of suburbia.
VA 120 is blown off by George Washington Mem Parkway, though in fairness an interchange there would've been a challenge to build as the parkway is way above VA 120.
Not sure why VA 120 isn't numbered VA 238 as part of a 9-238 swap. Even weirder is that VA 120 ends at VA 123 which makes a turn to access the chain Bridge to Washington.
