I-77, I-81 (exit 80), US 11, US 52: 0 - 0
SR 1004, SR 1006: 1.83 - 1.83
Creation: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of part of VA 15. Originaly it ran from US 11-121 (now F-044) to Max Meadows. This is the 4th VA 121.
Adjustments: In Feb 1969 (CTB), VA 121's south end was moved west to its current endpoint. Initially the south end of VA 121 was at the west side of the Barber shop on F-044, just about where the I-81 SB ramp to VA 121 begins, and had a series of sharp curves heading around the north edge of the McDonalds parking lot, then after a bit of current 121 curled east and north around another sharp curve that is still accessible as accesses to a few homes.
Improvements:  Paved upon inception; no multilane segments
Posted:  Fully posted; The last cutout was removed in the late 90s and was located at its north endpoint. A US 121 shield has been on a BGS on I-81 SB for a few years.

Comment: VA 121 is left over from the existence of US 121 in Virginia. It is doubtful this was under consideration from any promotion to US Route status.
When US 121 is finally signed in Virginia again, will VA 121 be renumbered as an extended VA 94?

VA 121 #1: Appeared in 1923 as a renumbering of VA 12Y, running from VA 12 (now US 58 Bus) Franklin south to the North Carolina line.
About 1926, VA 121 was renumbered as an extended VA 108. Today this is part of US 258 and US 258 Bus, except within Franklin it cut over on High St to end at 4th St.
VA 121 #2: Appeared in Mar 1927 (CTB) as an upgrade to CR 3, running from VA 12 (now VA 94-274 jct) north 1.33 miles to current SR 805 Providence.
In Aug 1928, VA 121 was renumbered as VA 116. Today it is part of VA 94, although the lower end of this has been rebuilt in places leaving behind abandoned segments. SR 816 Turkey Knob Rd is the northernmost part of this VA 121.

VA 121 #3: Appeared Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 1141 from Pound to Georges Fork and VA 114 from Georges Fork to Haysi. VA 121 continued east as an upgrade to CR 2 east to the Buchanan County line. A second piece of VA 121 was created as an upgrade to CRs 1 and 3 from VA 126 (now US 460) Grundy east through Stacy to West Virginia.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 121 was extended north with VA 120 (now US 23 Bus) from Pound a bit, then west 5 miles, as an upgrade to CR 24. Also, VA 121 was extended south from Grundy with (or possibly replaced) VA 126 to Tookland (1928-31 officials strongly suggest this), then west 9.58 miles along today's SR 617 and (no longer connects to) SR 604 as new primary routing to the Prater area.
In June 1931 (CTB), the two pieces of VA 121 were connected.
The 1932 Official shows VA 121 leaving VA 126 at Van Sant instead of Tookland.
In July 1933, VA 121 was renumbered as VA 59. Today it is SR 671 west of Pound; a bit of US 23 Bus in Pound; VA 83 east which has been totally rebuilt in the Meade to Georges Fork area: abandoned alignments west of SR 623, SR 853 Red Onion Rd; abandoned alignments east of VA 361; SR 766; SR 765 Longs Fork Rd in the Georges Fork-Clintwood area; VA 83 from Clintwood to Fremont; abandoned but standing bridge over the Clinch River in Fremont; VA 63 from Fremont to Haysi; VA 83 from Haysi to West Virginia except VA 121 used SR 1003 Walnut St.

Creation: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 204. Had the same endpoints as it does now. This is the 4th VA 122.
Adjustments: In Jan 1943 (CTB), VA 122 was removed from SR 859 just north of VA 40.
In Sept 1963 (CTB), VA 122 was rerouted over its current Smith Mtn Lake crossing.
In July 1966 (CTB), VA 122 was removed from SRs 860 and 861 in the Bunker hill area along with some abandoned alignments
In Jan 1969 (CTB), VA 122 was removed from SRs 867, 868 and 869 in the area north of VA 24 along with some abandoned alignments.
In Jan 1971 (CTB), VA 122 was removed from SR 878 and abandoned alignment a little south of US 460.
In June 1995 (CTB), VA 122 was given its bypass of Bedford City via duplex with US 460 and US 460 Bus, then as an upgrade to Independence Blvd. The old route through Bedford became VA 122 Business.
In 2000, VA 122 was placed on its bypass of Moneta, leaving behind SRs 901 and 903 (no longer a through route).

Improvements:  Paved only from Bedford south to SR 801 upon inception
In 1937, VA 122 was paved north a few miles; also a couple miles were paved south of US 501.
In 1938, all of VA 122 between Bedford and Big Island were paved; pavement was extended south to Moneta
In 1941, VA 122 was paved from VA 40 to VA 116.
In 1943, the remainder of VA 122 was paved.
VA 122 was multilaned on the north side of Bedford sometime before the early 90s.
VA 122 was multilaned when added to the US 460 duplex of the Bedford Bypass in 1995.
Otherwise, VA 122 is still 2-lane everywhere.

VA 122 #1: Appeared in 1923 as a renumbering of VA 12X, running from VA 12 (curr US 58) near South Hill south to N.C. Today it is SR 903 out of South Hill down to SR 615, then west until it nears US 1 where VA 122 cut SW to cross the Roanoke River on a private toll bridge. VA 122 then followed SR 711 to Palmer Springs, then SR 712 over to VA 4 where it then dipped into North Carolina.
It is unclear whether the route was changed at Palmer Springs to use SR 713 southeast to the current US 1 crossing before or after the route was renumbered as part of VA 31 in 1925.
VA 122 #2: Appeared in 1925 as a renumbering of part of VA 31 running from VA 12 (now SR 750) Edgerton north to the rerouted VA 31 at the Nottoway River.
In 1926, VA 122 south was truncated slightly to the new routing of VA 12 (now US 58).
In Aug 1928, VA 122 was renumbered as VA 402. Today it is SR 712.

VA 122 #3: Appeared in Aug 1928 as a renumbering of part of VA 114, running from VA 121 (now SR 865) Georges Fork south to VA 11 (now VA 158) Coeburn, then after a duplex with VA 11 through Coeburn, VA 122 was assigned to replace Wise CR 20 and Scott SR 4 to Dungannon, then replace CR 1 southeast to today's VA 71. This was about 14 miles. However, the Aug 1928 CTB assigned "20.22 miles in the direction of Dungannon, Hartsock, Nicholsville (sic), Snowflack (sic), Gate City." VA 107 (predecessor to VA 71) was assigned to run 4.8 miles past the endpoint of the 20.22 miles, and also separately to run 1.5 miles from Hartsock east to the Russell County Line. So at least initially, VA 122 ran to close to Snowflake.
The 1931 Route Log shows VA 122 ending at VA 107 east of Nickelsville. It is not known whether VA 122 was immediately renumbered as part of VA 72. It is still VA 72 in Wise County except in Coeburn it used Quellin Ave to head south; In Scott County, VA 122 followed VA 72 to Dungannon, then VA 65-72 to the curve just south of SR 1007, then crossed the RR onto Emmet St which curls around to Washington St which used to cross the Clinch River, then VA 122 used SR 659 east to VA 65, then SR 774 southeast to VA 71.

VA 122Y?: The 1936 Wise County shows what was likely VA 72Y at the current VA 72-158 split in western Coeburn. The 1932 Wise County map does not show the area clearly enough to tell if VA 122Y preceeded it until July 1933. The triangle setup is gone today, but it looks like mainline VA 72 follows what would've been the Y designation.

Adjustments: In Aug 1956 (CTB), VA 123 was removed from today's Old Chain Bridge Rd just east of VA 309 in McLean and put on Chain Bridge Rd. This was a route swap with SR 1820. Part of the old route is today the path of modern 123 Dolley Madison Blvd.
In Nov 1963 (CTB), VA 123 was placed on new construction in the McLean and Langley areas onto today's Dolley Madison Blvd. The old routes were not removed formally from the primary system until 1968 (OSR 123?) but eventually left behind SRs 3547 and 3563, plus an extended VA 193.

In April 1967 (CTB), VA 123 was removed from Occoquan Rd and placed on newly constructed Gordon Blvd (providing an interchange with I-95), then it used today's SR 1203 into Occoquan. Occoquan Rd became VA 253 (now SR 906).
Around 1975, VA 123 was removed from the town of Occoquan altogether, leaving behind Prince William SR 1203 and Fairfax SR 722.

Around 2006, VA 123 was rebuilt above the old Lorton prison area, leaving behind another substantial segment of Old Ox Rd.
Improvements:  Paved at time of inception
VA 123 was first multilaned on its Dolley Madison Blvd alignment in 1963.
VA 123 was multilaned further west to Vienna in 1966.
VA 123 was multilaned on its new Gordon Blvd alignment in 1967 to SCl Occoquan.
VA 123 was multilaned from Vienna to US 29-50 in 1974.
VA 123 was multilaned from VA 383 south to SR 620 in 1979.
In 1983 or 1984, VA 123 was widened from SR 620 to Fairfax Station.
About 1994, VA 123 was widened from VA 383 to VA 236; also from Fairfax Station south to SR 645.
Around 2005, VA 123 was widened from SR 645 to about SR 636.
Around 2006, VA 123 was widened from SR 636 to SR 722.
In 2007, VA 123 was widened from SR 722 across the Occoquan River to SR 1203.
The only 2-lane segments of VA 123 remaining are between VA 236 and US 29-50; GW Pkwy to DC Line
VA 123 is 6-8 lanes from SR 684 International Dr to VA 267.
Posted:  Fully posted; circle 123 signs back to at least 1995 in Fairfax City; circle 123 sign on SR 610 back to at least 2002; white border shields at the VA 243 intersection; US 123 shield existed briefly at US 1 in early 2000s; last known cutout removed from SR 645 EB; in 2004 Dan F observed presumably posted signs by George Mason University that had trailblazers for I-66 and I-495 as well as a VA 123N shield and a VA 123S shield (which denoted north and south). All the shields looked normal and used Federal Highway fonts, though they were white-on-maroon (maroon or green) to match the GMU sign.

Comment: VA 123 is a heavily traveled route in Northern Virginia with almost no rural areas left.
Oddly, VA 123 turns left at VA 120 to access the Chain Bridge. I'm guessing this is so because VA 123 is Chain Bridge Rd through northern Fairfax County.

VA 123 #1: Appeared in May 1923 (CTB) as an upgrade to CR 11,running from VA 12 (curr US 58) Mouth of Wilson south to the NC Line.
In Sept 1924 (CTB), the route for VA 123 was set to the "Charlton Survey" which was across the New River southeast. Early maps suggested VA 123 connected to NC 68 (old NC 16 routing) but it would not have used VA 16 or SR 858 because VA 12 actually was running that way. So VA 123 may have used SR 767.
In Aug 1928, VA 123 was renumbered as VA 129. Today it is parts of SRs 716 and 838 (ferry over New River is gone), plus most of VA 93.

VA 123 #2: Appeared in Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 113, running from VA 11 (now US 58 ALT) St. Paul north to Dante, then extended north 3.2 miles to the Dickenson line. A second piece was created as an upgrade to CR 3, running from VA 121 (now SR 865) Fremont south 7.11 miles.
In Aug 1929 (CTB), the northern piece of VA 123 was extended south 3 miles.
In June 1930 (CTB), the northern piece of VA 123 was extended south 4.65 miles.
In 1932, VA 123 was extended southeast with VA 11, then west replacing VA 124 to 5.6 miles past Dungannon.
In June 1932, VA 123 was extended southwest 10.11 miles towards Natural Tunnel, ending at the present SR 649 bridge over Cove Creek west of Duncan Mill.
In July 1933, VA 123 was renumbered as VA 70. Today this is Scott SR 649 east to VA 65 to Dungannon. VA 123 left VA 65-72 at the curve just north of SR 1010, then crossed the RR (no crossing now) onto Emmet St which curls around to Washington St which used to cross the Clinch River, then VA 123 used SR 659 east to VA 65. VA 123 used SR 683 in northeastern Scott County, but used VA 65 east to SR 828 to US 58 ALT, then north to St. Paul (used SR 811 loop), 4th Av (NOT VA 270), then VA 63 north to SR 663 except for SR 769 near Dante; SR 652 loop through Stratton.

Today, it is VA 65-72 east to Dungannon, then VA 124 left VA 65-72 at the curve just north of SR 1010, then crossed the RR (no crossing now) onto Emmet St which curls around to Washington St which used to cross the Clinch River, then VA 124 used SR 659 east to VA 65. VA 124 used SR 683 in northeastern Scott County, but used VA 65 east to SR 828 to US 58 ALT.
VA 124 #3: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 216 running from VA 8 (now SR 1001) Rich Creek north to the West Virginia line.

Creation:  Appeared in Sept 1963 as an upgrade to SR 630 from VA 10-32 to SR 620 and an upgrade to SR 630 from SR 627 Driver to VA 337. The 4.45 miles between SR 620 and SR 627 were the "Kings Highway" which was a private road dating back to 1928 that included a toll bridge over the Nanesmond River. This is the 4th VA 125.
Adjustments: In Dec 1963 (CTB), the toll was removed from the Nanesmond River Bridge.
In 2005, the Nanesmond River Bridge was closed out of safety concerns. VDOT did not have the money to repair it, so in 2007 the bridge was totally torn down. As of this writing there is no plan for putting another bridge in place, which was estimated to run around $50 million.

VA 125 #1: Appeared in July 1924 (CTB), running from VA 10 (now US 11) Cedarville southeast 5 miles towards Rock Springs Church. Up to late 1923 this had actually been the routing of VA 12.
In Aug 1925 (CTB), VA 125 was extended north 1.1 miles to Meadowview Station and extended south 1.3 miles towards Rock Spring Church.
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 Lodi). The road became secondary for a time before being placed back into the primary system in 1932 as part of VA 111. Today it is SR 803.
The portion from Cedarville to Meadowview became part of VA 111 (now VA 80).

VA 125 #2: Appeared Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 118 running from US 19/VA 11 (now Old Rosedale Hwy) Rosedale north to Council. It was hen extended northwest as new routing 3.18 miles.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), a separate piece of VA 125 was born as an upgrade to CR 2, running from VA 121 (now VA 63) Haysi south 3.52 miles; also VA 125 was extended along VA 121 east a bit, then north as new routing 1.94 miles towards Breaks Interstate Park.
In June 1931 (CTB), the Haysi piece was extended south 1.18 miles towards Council.
In 1932, VA 125 was renumbered as an extended VA 111. Today, it is part of 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.

In Nov 1940 (CTB), VA 125 was rerouted to replace SR 739 north to US 29 north of Danville. The northernmost mile of this was taken into the primary system in July 1940 (CTB) but what number it was assigned is a mystery. The segment over to US 58 Westover became VA 125Y?
By July 1941, VA 125 was renumbered as US 29 ALT from the Dan River north to US 29 (now US 29 Bus and Piedmont Dr). VA 125 was reduced to running from US 29 ALT at the dan River Bridge northwest to US 58 Westover (replaced 125Y?). South of the river was also made part of US 29 ALT (which has since been rerouted - VA 125 used Bishop Rd originally.)
In May 1946 (CTB), SR 1145 was placed into the Primary Highway System, running between US 29 (now VA 293) and US 29 ALT (now US 29 Bus) in the Schoolfield area. This was almost certainly an extension of VA 125 south.
VA 125 disappeared from official maps in 1954 and I can find no CTB reference to decommission it. Today it is Park Ave and Dan View Dr below VA 51; Piedmont Dr over the Dan River; US 29 Bus east to Park Ave (may have used Park Cir?) south to VA 293 Main St.

VA 125Y ?: For a few months in 1940-41, VA 125 was rerouted north of the Dan River along roughly Piedmont Drive and US 29 Bus. This left Park Ave/Dan View Dr which was not decommissioned. Best guess this was briefly VA 125Y before being returned to mainline VA 125 when US 29 ALT was designated.

There's been some talk of putting in a roundabout at the US 13 BUS/VA 316/VA 126 intersection, due to a series of accidents in the early 2000's.

VA 126 #1: Appeared in Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 111, running from VA 121 (now SR 1003) Grundy southeast to US 19/VA 11 Claypool Hill.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 121 was extended south to Tookland, then west along today's SR 617. VA 126 may have been truncated to this location: The '32 Buchanan County map shows no duplex while the '31 Route log says VA 126 ended in Grundy.
In July 1932 (CTB), VA 126 was extended west 6.3 miles toward the Kentucky line as an upgrade to CR 2.
In July 1933 (CTB), VA 126 was renumbered as VA 84. Today it is US 460 and US 460 Bus through Cedar Bluff; Edgewater Dr; US 460 Bus through Richlands; VA 67/SR 751/SR 806 through Raven; SRs 804/805 Red Ash; SR 727 Grimleysville; SR 721 in Keen Mountain/Marvin; SRs 759 and 1013 in Janney; SR 725 in Tookland. There are innumerable abandoned alignments of US 460 on the big curves following various mountain streams.

VA 126 #2: Appeared in July 1933 as a 2-piece route -
1. US 501 Volens west to VA 40 Cody (renumbering of VA 303).
2. US 501 Gladys southwest towards Long Island (renumbering of VA 323).
In Aug 1933 (CTB), piece 2 was extended south over SR 670 to the Pittsylvania County line below Long Island.
In Feb 1937 (CTB), VA 40 was rebuilt in the Cody area, and VA 126 was shifted east onto new alignment to meet VA 40 a little east of Cody, leaving behind SR 668.

In May 1943 (CTB), Piece 1 was downgraded to SR 603. Also, Piece 2 was truncated on its south end to SR 699 near Gladys, leaving behind SR 761.
In April 1944 (CTB), the remaining bit of VA 126 was downgraded to SR 761.
Note that the 1933 Route log says VA 126 followed VA 40 briefly and then north to Long Island. Best guess is that SR 668 was in line to become VA 126 at some point but that did not happen.

VA 126 #3: Created in Nov 1948 (CTB) as a renumbering of part of VA 128. Ran from US 460 (now US 221) east along Graves Mill Rd to end at VA 297 (now US 460 Bus).
In Aug 1964 (CTB), VA 126 east was extended over new freeway construction over to US 29.
In Oct 1964 (CTB), VA 126 was removed from the new freeway which became part of VA 297 (today it is US 501). VA 126 unstead was extended to replace VA 297 on Fort Ave from Graves Mill Rd to US 29 (now VA 163). This reversal of 126 on the freeway was because 297 was considered an arterial route coming from Bedford and should therefore be continued over the new freeway.
In July 1976 (CTB), VA 126 east was truncated to its original ending. Fort Ave north to Wards Rd became part of US 460 Bus.
In Sept 1977 (CTB), VA 126 was decommissioned within the City of Lynchburg, leaving behind Graves Mill Rd.
In Sept 1979 (CTB), the 0.26 miles of VA 126 remaining in Bedford County off US 221 were downgraded to SR 1425.
The last Official map to explicitly show VA 126 was 1976.

Oddly, official maps up through 1944 do not show this as primary and maps 1946-55 show it as US 29 ALT. Only Official maps 1956-59 show this as VA 128.

VA 128 #1: Appeared in Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 117. It ran from US 19/VA 11 Bluefield north to Pocahontas, with a stint through West Virginia in between. VA 128 may have initially entered Pocahontas via SR 658 (1924 topo maps show this). Then it was extended as new primary routing past US 19 to the West Virginia line at Bluefield College.
In 1929 (bridge date), VA 128 was removed from SR 717/643.
The 1930 Official shows VA 128 as fully paved, so it definitely used today's VA 102 approach to Pocahontas by then.
It is unclear but VA 128 may have replaced VA 132 over to the Bluefield Airport along Stadium Dr in 1932.
In July 1933, VA 128 was renumbered as VA 85. Today it is VA 102 south of Bluefield; US 19 across the Bluestone River; (I believe) Fairview St north across the RR to SR 802, then SRs 842 and 843; VA 102 to Pocahontas.

VA 130 #1: Appeared Aug 1928 as new primary routing, running from VA 12 (now US 58 WB/VA 91 NB jct) south to the Tennessee Line.
In July 1933, VA 130 was renumbered as VA 78. Today it is a bit of US 58/VA 91; all of SR 1212 Orchard Hill Rd; VA 91 south to the state line.

VA 130Y #1: Created around 1948 as a renumbering of VA 130 running along today's SR 1034 Main St between VA 130 (now VA 210) and US 29/VA 130 (now VA 163) in Madison Heights. For some reason it was on the wrong leg of the triangle.
About 1955, the US 29 (now US 29 Bus) expressway was put in place very nearby and VA 130Y was downgraded to SR 1034.
VA 130Y appeared explicitly on 1948 and 1949 Officials and was implied on 1950-54 Officials. See scan under VA 130 entry.
VA 130Y #2: Created sometime after 1958 (not on the '58 Rockbridge County map) as the north leg of a triangle where VA 130 meets US 501.
This VA 130Y was physically destroyed in early 2009 as part of construction to build a new Maury River bridge for VA 130.
This VA 130Y was not posted back to at least 1996.

VA 131 #1: Appeared in March 1923 as new primary routing, running from VA 13 (now SR 677) St Stephens Church to King and Queen C.H.
In March 1927 (CTB), VA 131 was extended south 4 miles.
In August 1928, VA 131 was renumbered as VA 29. Today it is VA 14 except at King and Queen C.H. it used SR 681 Allens Cir.
VA 131 #2: Appeared Aug 1928 as a renumbering of VA 112 from VA 110 (now old US 58 ALT, slightly SE of modern US 58 ALT) Hansonville to VA 11 (now SR 1030 which is Old VA 71) Lebanon. VA 131 was 100% duplexed with US 19.
In July 1932, mileage was given to CR 1 between Lebanon and Cleveland. I believe this segment (not shown on officials or the 1932 Russell County Map) was an extension of VA 131.
In July 1933, VA 131 was dropped in favor of US 19 from Hansonville to Lebanon and was renumbered as VA 82 from Lebanon to Cleveland. 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/Old Fincastle Rd; VA 82 to Cleveland except its ridge crossing has since been straightened out in a couple places.
VA 131 did not appear on any official maps, but is in the 1932 VDOT County Atlas.

Adjustments:  In June 1973 (CTB), VA 132 was rerouted on Henry St to follow Lafayette St west to US 60 (new primary routing). Henry St south of Lafayette and Duke of Gloucester St became part of VA 5-VA 31.
In June 1978 (CTB), VA 132 was removed from Lafayette St (became part of VA 162 which is now not primary here). Instead, VA 132 was rerouted south on Henry St to VA 199 (some of this was a multiplex with VA 5-31) and Colonial Pkwy.

VA 132 #2: Appeared June 1930 (CTB) as new primary routing running from VA 128 (VA 102 College Dr) 0.30 miles to the Bluefield Airport.
It is unclear what happened to VA 132 but I'm pretty sure it was one of these two things:
1. VA 132 was renumbered as part of VA 128 in 1932.
2. VA 132 was renumbered as part of VA 85 in July 1933.
Today, the airport is gone and the route is the Stadium Dr segment of VA 102.
Stadium Drive was shown as secondary on the 1932 Tazewell County map. The only proof of the existence of VA 132 anywhere in the universe is that it appears in the 1931 Route Log.
VA 132 #3: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 326, running as a short route from US 460 to SR 630/681 Evergreen.
In May 1943 (CTB), VA 132 was downgraded to SR 681.
VA 132 #4: First appears in the July 1955 CTB as proposed construction in York County.
The Aug 1955 CTB describes VA 132's route to run from the Colonial Pkwy north to VA 168 (current VA 143).
In Jan 1956 (CTB), VA 132 north was truncated to end at VA 31 (now VA 132 Henry St).
In May 1957 (CTB), VA 132 was renumbered as VA 132Y.
VA 132 #4's brief existence is captured on the reverse of the 1957 Official.

Creation:  Designated between 9/42 and 1944 as a renumbering of VA 170, running generally the way it does now.
This is the 3rd VA 134.
Adjustments:  In 1951 or 1953, VA 134 was extended north slightly to its current endpoint with US 17 which was moved off SR 706 Theater Rd.
In Apr 1964 (CTB), VA 134 was placed on Magruder Blvd (replacing VA 134-A), duplexed with I-64/VA 168, then duplexed with US 258 Mercury Blvd back over to Armistead Ave. The old route became unnumbered Wythe Creek Rd; VA 172 south to Sheppard Blvd; unnumbered route south to Mercury Blvd
VDOT officials from 1967-71 show VA 134 assigned to today's I-664 from I-64 down to VA 351. The April 1966 CTB called this road "Interstate Spur to Route 64." The April and June 1967 CTB do reference it as VA 134 referring to construction dollar allocation. The March 1969 CTB says the Connector was designated an interstate by the 1968 Federal Aid highway Act. So perhaps it was envisioned to put 134 on the Connector when opened but was accepted into the interstate system first.
In Jan 1979 (CTB), VA 134 was extended south from Queen St to Settlers Landing Rd, replacing a bit of VA 143.
Improvements:  Paved upon inception;
VA 134 is first shown as multilane on the 1951 Official, from US 60 (Queen St) out to US 258 Mercury Blvd.
VA 134 was multilaned in 1964 when it was added to US 258, I-64 and Magruder Blvd

VA 134 on Magruder Blvd still retains some of its original 1964 concrete.
One of the first SPUIs in Virginia is located at the VA 134 and Hampton Roads Pkwy interchange.

VA 134 #2: Appeared July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 324, running as a stub from VA 133 (now SR 658) south to Hampden-Sydney College. See scan under VA 133 entry.
1941 CTB references a bypass to the east of Hampden-Sydney as VA 134. However, in Sept 1942 (CTB), VA 134 was renumbered as part of VA 133.
VA 134-A: Appears in CTB minutes from 1961-63 as Magruder Blvd under construction. It also appears on the 1963 official and the 1963 Esso map on Hampton Rds. However, I think the road was actually opened as plain ol' VA 134 in 1964.

From:  Kenbridge (Lunenburg County)
To:  near Danieltown (Brunswick County)
Total Length:  12.03 miles  
ROUTE LOG
VA 40, BEGIN VA 138: 0.00 - 0.00
VA 138 SB: 3.80 - 3.80
Brunswick-Lunenburg Line: 4.67 - 8.47
VA 46: 3.56 - 12.03
Creation:  Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 437 from US 1 Alberta to VA 34 (now VA 46), a duplex with VA 34 to Danieltown, then replaced VA 423 north to the Nottoway County Line. A separate piece also replaced VA 423 from VA 48 (now VA 40) Blackstone south several miles. This is the 2nd VA 137.
Adjustments:  In Oct 1934 (CTB), the 3.63 gap in VA 137 was closed as an upgrade to SR 644.
In Oct 1940 (CTB), VA 137 had some changes:
1. VA 137 north was rerouted at Danieltown to replace VA 34 over to VA 40 Kenbridge. The route to Blackstone became VA 46.
2. Two discontinuous pieces of VA 137 were created by replacing VA 32 from VA 88 (now SR 619) Purdy east 4.55 miles and also replacing another part of VA 32 from just west of the Sussex-Greensville line at Jarratt east across US 301 to end 0.9 miles short of SR 645 Henry.
In April 1944 (CTB), the Purdy segment was downgraded to 608 and from US 301 to Henry was downgraded to SR 631. The piece of VA 137 from US 301 west to SR 610 Greensville County line became VA 139.
In May 1953 (CTB), VA 137 east was truncated to VA 46 Danieltown, leaving behind its VA 46 duplex and SR 652 east to US 1 Alberta (some of this is now VA 136).
In April 1979 (CTB), VA 137 was rerouted at Danieltown to meet VA 46 via new construction south of the railroad. The old alignment north of the railroad is now part of SR 729; south of the railroad is abandoned (but visible) routing.

Creation:  Appeared in July 1933 (CTB) as a renumbering of VA 433 from VA 137 south to the Brunswick Line. A separate piece also was created as a renumbering of VA 416 running from US 58 (now SR 1520 High St) La Crosse south to about SR 617 Marengo. This is the 2nd VA 138.
Adjustments:  In Aug 1933 (CTB), VA 138 was extended south from the Nottoway-Brunswick Line to US 1, then duplexed with US 1 and US 58 over to La Crosse to create a continuous route.
In May 1946 (CTB), VA 138 south was truncated to its current end, leaving behind its US 1 and US 58 duplexes, plus SR 618.
I cannot find a CTB reference when VA 138 was extended north with VA 137 to Kenbridge. It is NOT shown in the '58 VDOT County Atlas. The first official to show it is the 1977 issue.

VA 138 #1: Appeared in Dec 1930 (CTB) as new primary routing, running from VA 126 (now US 460 Bus) Richlands north 0.89 miles.
In July 1932 (CTB), VA 138 was extended north 4.11 miles
Also in July 1932, mileage was assigned from VA 111 (now VA 80) Honaker northeast 6.5 miles towards Raven over CRs 135 and 12. I believe this was a second piece of VA 138. This segment does not appear on the 1932 official or 1932 Russell County Map.
In July 1933, both pieces of VA 138 were renumbered as VA 83. Today it is VA 80 east of Clover Rd in Honaker; VA 67 eastward except it used SR 637 loops over to Gardners. The original piece is part of VA 67.

VA 140 #1: Appeared June 1932 as new primary routing. Did not appear explicitly on maps or in the CTB minutes but with the pattern of numbering routes in District 1 I believe this was an upgrade to CR 7 and ran from US 411/VA 10 (now US 58-421) northeast to just east of Benhams.
In Oct 1940 (CTB), VA 140 was renumbered as VA 75. Today it is SR 700.

In Sept 1942 (CTB), VA 140 south was truncated to Edgerton, leaving behind the US 58 duplex and SR 670.
In April 1949 (CTB), the rest of VA 140 was downgraded to SR 712.
