Creation: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 606 and VA 628. Ran essentially as it does today. This is the 3rd VA 201.
Adjustments: In Aug 1933 (CTB), VA 201 was extended west towards Monaskon.
In Sept 1937 (CTB), VA 201 was extended to Monaskon.
In May 1943 (CTB), VA 201 was truncated back to its current end, leaving behind SR 681 and a small bit of VA 354.
Sometime after 1961, VA 201 was given its current routing through McNeal's Corner. Before, VA 201 used today's VA 201Y and SR 600 to inexplicably use two legs of the triangle. The SW leg of the triangle is now VA 201Y and the SE leg is SR 600.

VA 202 #1: Appeared in March 1927 (CTB) as new primary routing, running from VA 20 (now VA 40) Charlotte CH south 4 miles towards Drakes Branch.
CTB minutes in 1928 suggest that VA 202 was renumbered as an extension of original VA 104 before the great renumbering in Aug 1928. Today it is part of VA 47. VA 202 was shown but not labeled on official maps.
VA 202 #2: Appeared in August 1928 as new primary routing, running from VA 12 (Broad and Church) Martinsville north 6.58 miles via duplex with US 311/VA 33 on Church St to Walnut St to Franklin St towards Figgsboro. See scan under VA 203 #1 entry.
In June 1930 (CTB), VA 202 was extended 2.5 miles to the Franklin County line.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 202 was extended north 2 miles.
In July 1932 (CTB), VA 202 was extended north to VA 20 (now VA 40) Penhook.
In July 1933, VA 202 was renumbered as VA 108. Today it is VA 174, SR 714, all of current VA 108 and SR 890.
VA 202Y: Connected VA 3 and VA 202 in the Templeman area. Implied on Officials back to the mid 1930s and was shown in the 1943 VDOT County atlas. The 1932 Westmoreland County map implies a triangle setup so this may actually be a renumbering of VA 607.
In 1999, VA 202Y was renumbered as SR 767 when VA 202 was rebuilt to "split" the triangle.
Ever since the western piece of VA 202 was removed, VA 202Y looked like it was on the wrong leg of the triangle.

In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 206 was renumbered as VA 205 and a small bit became a Roanoke City street (see this topo map which shows a main road doing this along with current US 221. Today it is still mostly US 221.
VA 206 #2: Created Dec 1930 (CTB) as new primary routing. Ran from US 311/VA 33 (now US 220 Bus/US 221 jct) Roanoke southeast to the Franklin County Line.
In Oct 1932 (CTB), VA 206 was extended with US 311 to VA 207, then west on VA 207 to western Roanoke, then northwest as new routing to Roanoke County line, then replaced VA 225 out to VA 22 (now SR 863) Hanging Rock.
In July 1933, VA 206 was renumbered as VA 116. Today it is still VA 116 in Roanoke except it used 11th St and Gilmer Ave instead of Melrose all the way. VA 206 used today's Cove Rd and VA 419 north of there.

Adjustments:  In 1935 or 1936, VA 207 from Chilesburg to Ladysmith was renumbered as VA 229 (now SR 639).
Also in 1935 or 1936, VA 207 was given a second piece from Port Royal southwest 8.34 miles towards Bowling Green, which replaced VA 229 #2.
In Aug 1936 (CTB), piece 2 was extended from Port Royal to VA 3 which may have been partially an upgrade to SR 624 (see VA 205 scan).
In late 1939, a third piece of VA 207 was opened as new construction from VA 206 near Dahlgren to the new Potomac River Bridge location

In May 1952 (CTB), VA 207 was rebuilt in the Ruther Glen area to the modern alignment, leaving behind SR 716 (now SR 652 and 716) through Pattersons Corner, Moncure Corner and McDuff (some of this is destroyed by I-95). Also, SR loops 639/713, SR 714 and SR 601/715 at Athens were created by modern 207 construction.
In March 1954 (CTB), VA 207 was rebuilt to bypass Milford and central Bowling Green, moving the VA 207 endpoint to the current US 301 Bus/VA 2/VA 207 Bus jct. This left behind SR 722 through Milford and SR 614 into central Bowling Green.
In 1994, VA 207 was given its southern freeway bypass of Bowling Green, leaving behind VA 207 Bus.

VA 207's solo portion of the Bowling Green Bypass was 4-laned in 2001 or 2002 (the 1994 official erroneous shows 4-laning).

Comment:  VA 207 is one of a few primary non-interstates to have mile markers, which it does for its entire route.
Official Maps 1970-72 erroneously show the VA 207 portion of the Bowling Green bypass as existing.
From I-95, VA 207 is prominently advertised as the last exit to reach US 301 and the Potomac River Bridge. Even US 1 has TO US 301 shields in both directions.

Creation:  Appeared May 1950 (CTB) running from US 522 Wares Crossroads east to Snell (upgrade to SRs 613 and 606), then replacing VA 51 through Spotsylvania CH to end at US 1/US 1 ALT Four Mile Fork. This is the 3rd VA 208.
Adjustments:  In May 1972 (CTB), VA 208 was extended along US 522 to Mineral, then along VA 22 to Louisa, then south as an upgrade to SR 659 to end at US 250 Ferncliff. The Ferncliff-Louisa segment had previously been a state highway before, the last being VA 27.
In Jan 2005 (Scott Kozel post to mtr), VA 208 was placed on a new bypass to the east of central Louisa, leaving behind SR 630.
In Jan 2008 (Larry Gross post to mtr), VA 208 was placed on a newly constructed road that will eventually fully bypass Spotsylvania CH, Snell and Post Oak. VA 208 continues on Brock Rd (SR 613) west to the new road (just west of SR 608). The old route became VA 208 Business.
The new bypass (Phase 1) actually continues southwest of SR 613/VA 208 over to SR 648 and at the transition between these two roads there is a BEGIN VA 208 shield since at least Nov 2008.
In Dec 2011, VA 208 was placed on a newly constructed bypass of Post Oak, leaving behind SR 606 and SR 793.
In late 2012, VA 208 was (sorta) signed on the rebuilt portion of SR 648 from the "END" of VA 208 south to the original VA 208, although the END/BEGIN shields from 2008 were still up in April 2013, as were all postings on the original 208 via Snell to Spotsylvania CH.
In mid-to-late 2013, VA 208 was fully moved onto the Lake Anna Pkwy over SR 648 back to the original VA 208 routing. The old VA 208 routing via Snell became an extended VA 208 Business.

In July 1933, VA 208 was renumbered as VA 117. Today it is US 11A-460 east of Salem and VA 117 northeast to US 11.

In May 1945 (CTB), VA 208 was downgraded to SRs 606 and 625.
VA 208Y: Appears explicitly in the 1940 VDOT County Atlas, but not on the 1936 Caroline County map. Formed a triangle at the east end of VA 208 with VA 2. The May 1946 CTB minutes specifically mention this 0.10 mile road because they forgot to decomission it when they axed VA 208 in May 1945. This makes 208Y the only Y route not to have touched its parent. Today it is part of SR 607.
VA 208Y was also shown on the 1942 Topo map of the area.

VA 209 #1: Appeared in August 1928 as new primary routing. It began at US 11-VA 33 Cloverdale and ran to Daleville then northwest around through Catawba to the Montgomery County line heading towards Blacksburg. Part of VA 209 replaced 0.35 miles of VA 221 and a duplex with VA 22 (now VA 311).
In June 1930 (CTB) a second piece of VA 209 was born running from VA 23 (now US 460 Bus) Blacksburg east 2.4 miles.
In Dec 1930 (CTB), piece 1 extended west 4.8 miles towards Blacksburg. Piece 2 was extended west along Turner St then Prices Fork Rd 1.46 miles.
In July 1932 (CTB), pieces 1 and 2 were connected, plus extended west to Linkous Store.
Also in July 1932, a new piece was created replacing CR 113 running north from VA 10 (now SR 7xx Bonsack Rd) to the Botetourt County Line
In July 1933, all parts of VA 209 were renumbered as VA 114. Today this is SR 685, VA 412, US 460 Bus, Roanoke St/SR 785, VA 311, SR 779 (except northwest of Tinker Mtn VA 209 went through what is now a large quarry) and US 220. The Bonsack piece is SR 604.

VA 209 #2: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of VA 616. Ran from VA 51 (now VA 208-SR 738 jct) Snell west through Post Oak and Paytes, then curling southwest to end 0.3 miles short of the SR 601/652 junction in Granite Springs.
In April 1944 (CTB), VA 209 west was truncated to SR 609 Paytes leaving behind SR 601.
In May 1948 (CTB), the rest of VA 209 was downgraded to a bit of SR 608 and a long segment of SR 606 (today Post Oak to Snell is part of VA 208).
VA 209 #3: Appeared Nov 1957 (CTB) as a new designation running from VA 205 to the James Monroe Memorial, south of Colonial Beach.
The April 1986 CTB Minutes indicated that VA 209 was barricaded in 1971 by Westmoreland County and VDOT removed the route from maps. This is because the defunct Monroe Birthplace Monument Association, chartered with acquiring and preserving the site, never developed the surrounding land nor erected any type of memorial depicting the historical site which was to have been served by the road. So in 1986, VA 209 was officially decommissioned.
For a number of years, VA 209 was not a road at all. There are historic markers along VA 205 at its location near SR 625. From Google Earth you could still make out VA 209's run to the parking area for the never-built monument. However, about 2009, the road was put back into service as the Monroe Birthplace now has something to visit.

Adjustments:  About 1990, VA 220 ALT was rerouted near its north end to meet directly with the US 11/VA 220 ALT split at I-81. This left behind a little US 11 plus SR 811 (US 220 used to meet US 11 at SR 811 but the interchange with I-81 moved US 220 northward.

Upon inception, VA 220 ALT was multilaned on its US 460 overlay.
