US 321
From:  Monticello Crossing (James City County)
To:  College of William & Mary, City of Williamsburg
Total Length:  at least 5.23 miles  






Creation:  It appears VA 321 was created around 1938. There is no specific reference in the CTB that I can find and William and Mary College did NOT receive mileage in July 1932 as other schools had. It is explicitly shown in the 1943 VDOT County Atlas as a 0.46-mile street which appears to be Stadium Dr and the northeastern third of Landrum Dr today connecting VA 31 (now VA 5) and US 60Z (now Richmond Rd) plus a second street (0.21 mi) which appears to be James Blair Dr from US 60Z to the first VA 321 segment. This is the 3rd VA 321.
Adjustments:  In Oct 1947, three segments of unidentified road totaling 0.167 miles were deleted from the system, while 0.649 miles of new roads including the veterans housing area were added to VA 321.
In April 1951 (CTB), four unidentified streets totaling 0.509 miles were added to VA 321.
In April 1955 (CTB), 0.570 more miles of unidentified driveways were added to VA 321.
In March 1958 (CTB), 0.205 miles of driveways described as north and south of the new Phi Beta Kappa Memorial Hall were added to VA 321. and
In Oct 1967 (CTB), VA 321 received 1.14 more miles of unidentified streets.
In March 1972 (CTB), 3 segments were added to VA 321: Campus Dr (I think this is Ukrop Way now) from the triangle below William and Mary Hall northeast to the Dillard St/Blair Ave jct. (0.19 mi); new construction extending Monticello Ave 0.80 miles to Ironbound Rd; Compton Dr from Monticello Av to William and Mary Hall parking lot (0.48 mi)

In March 1977 (CTB), 0.08 miles of "Campus Dr between Campus Rd and Botetourt Dr" was removed from VA 321.
Around 2000, VA 321 was extended to the new VA 199 freeway and over to SR 613.  The 2000-01 official map shows part of this extension as VA 5 ALT, which apparently did not pan out.

Posting:  Some posting outside campus, including the western end and reassurance markers at VA 199; also a reassurance marker east of SR 615 Ironbound Road (which according to Dave Montuori was still a cutout in the early 1980s)
Comment:  Includes most roads in the college.
Despite several changes, the 1958 James City County map shows the same as the 1946 one.
In January 2003 I got some info about VA 321's west end (thanks to Dan Ehlke):

Having just graduated from William & Mary in 2001, I recall many drives I took around the greater Williamsburg area. During my time down there, SR 321 (Monticello Avenue) was being extended out past SR 199. At the time of my graduation, it came to an abrupt end just past News Road (secondary 613), depositing drivers onto a small neighborhood street called Powhatan Secondary. There was another, shorter section of Monticello Avenue (which presumably would also take the 321 numbering) constructed from Centerville Rd/secondary 614 a little ways toward the east. Latest maps indicate that this section will eventually join up with the main route, and that it will all be extended past 614, finally ending at SR 5. Indeed, as of late 2001, construction had begun on the intersection with 5.


Dan updated the situation in July 2003:

The entire stretch of Monticello Avenue (part of which is signed VA 321) appears to now be complete between VA 199 and VA 5. However, about a half mile south/west of the junction with 199, signs have appeared marking the (new) roadway as secondary highway 5000.


Dave Montuori sent a message in June 2005 (previously verified by Froggie in 2004) that VA 321 definitely ended at SR 613 and SR 5000 picks up from there.

VA 321 #1:  Created in 1923 as a renumbering of VA 2 CONN, which was created by legislative action. Ran from VA 32 (probably the intersection of SR 615-631) Zion to Oilville.
In March 1924 (CTB), VA 321 was extended east 4 miles towards Richmond as new routing.
In January 1925 (CTB), VA 321 was extended east another 6 miles towards Richmond as new routing.
In May 1926 (CTB), VA 321 was extended 2 miles west toward Keswick from VA 32 and east 7.5 more miles towards Richmond.
In October 1926 (CTB), VA 321 was renumbered as an extended VA 41. Today it is SR 615; US 250; SR 607 loop: SR 626 loop; SR 659 to SR 653/601 loop; Three Chopt-Shannon Hill Rd; SR 699 loops; SR 606 to Hadensville; SR 609 to East Leake; SR 700 loop; SR 634 loops; SR 702/636 loop; SR 612/621 to Centerville.A lot of these loops are named "Three Chopt Roads" between Zion and Richmond which would be VA 321's routing.
VA 321 is erroneously still labeled as part of VA 2 on the 1923 Official.
VA 321 #2:  Appeared in December 1930 (CTB) as a newly numbered route. Was a loop from US 501/VA 18 South Boston to US 501/VA 18 near Halifax.
In July 1933, this became US 501 (which had been using current VA 129).

Creation:  Eastern State Hospital received state mileage in 1932 covering 1.297 miles. However, a number was not assigned until around 1938. Eastern State Hospital was in two quite separate locations then - the current facility northwest of Williamsburg (Dunbar area) which had a mile of road west off SR 615, and a facility in central Williamsburg (just east off Henry St south of Francis St (the original hospial location is now the Rockefeller Museum) with 0.284 miles over two driveways which connected to Henry St (see scan under VA 321 entry). This is the 3rd VA 322.
Adjustments:  In March 1953 (CTB), 0.58 miles of new roads in ther Dunbar area were added to VA 322 and 0.26 miles were deleted for a net gain of 0.32 miles.
In July 1954 (CTB), 1.36 miles of roads were added to VA 322 in the Dunbar area.
In March 1970 (CTB), 1.98 miles of roads were added to VA 322 in the Dunbar area.

In May 1970 (CTB), the two VA 322 segments off Henry St in central Williamsburg were removed from the state highway system. I don't believe either of these segments exist as roads any longer.
It appears that sometime after 2001, a little over a mile of roads at Eastern State Hospital were removed from VA 322.
Posting:  Fully posted at both SR 615 intersections. A posting near SR 612 is now gone.
Comment:  Appears on official issues back to 1961 (except oddly 1975), but is shown back to at least the 1940 VDOT County Atlas.
VA 322 appears in Rand McNally insets of Williamsburg.
Eastern State Hospital has existed in some form or other since 1773, the oldest facility dedicated to mental health treatment.

VA 322 #1: Created May 1923 (CTB) as an upgrade to CR 1. Ran from VA 32 (curr US 15) Sprouse Corner west to Buckingham CH.
In March 1924 (CTB), a separate segment of VA 322 was created running from 3 miles west of VA 18 (current US 29 Bus) Amherst to 5 miles east of Amherst (replacing parts of CR 4 and CR 1); Additionally, a third segment was created running 3 miles from VA 14 (current SR 608-699 jct) McCormick's Gate east to Buena Vista, replacing CR 8.
In January 1925 (CTB), VA 322 was extended as new routing 8 miles east from VA 32 towards Cumberland CH (upgrading CR 4); also, VA 322 was extended 3.4 miles further west of Amherst towards Buena Vista and 6 miles further east from Amherst
In April 1926 (CTB), a fourth piece of VA 322 was created from VA 13 (current US 60-VA 45) Cumberland CH west 5 miles towards Sprouses (upgrading CR 4); also, VA 322 was extended west 4 more miles away from Amherst to Forks of Buffalo (upgrading CR 4).

Creation: The Piedmont Sanitorium received 1.27 miles of state mileage in 1932 but did not receive a number until around 1938. VA 323 is not on official state maps. Serves the State Hospital east of Burkeville. This is the 3rd VA 323.
Adjustments: In Oct 1938 (CTB), 0.03 miles of VA 323 were added to connect to US 460.
Posting: Shields exist at both US 360 & US 460. A third entrance, off US 460 has a rectangle.
Comment: VA 323 is a 2-lane divided route at its northern end.
The Piedmont Sanatorium was a rest home for African American TB sufferers until 1965. The facility reopened as the Piedmont Geriatric Hospital in 1967.

VA 323 #1: Appeared in 1923 as a renumbering of VA 20 CONN and was in 1918 part of a convoluted VA 20. Ran from VA 32 (curr US 15) Keysville to VA 10 (curr US 460 Bus) Blackstone via Lunenburg and Kenbridge. VA 323 was renumbered as four routes in 1929: VA 47 from Keysville to Lunenburg, part of VA 44 from Lunenburg to Victoria, VA 401 from Victoria to Kenbridge, and VA 48 from Kenbridge to Blackstone. Today all of these are part of VA 40 except: SR 775 Neblett Field Rd; Old Court St in Victoria; SR 736 west of Kenbridge.
VA 323 #2: Created June 1932 (CTB Minutes) as an unidentified new primary route, upgrading part of CR 9. The 1932 VDOT County Atlas shows VA 323 to run from VA 18 (current US 501) Gladys west to Long Island.
In July 1933 this was renumbered as part of VA 126. Today it is SR 761.

VA 325 #1: Created in June 1923 as an upgrade to CR 4; Originally ran from VA 32 (curr US 15 Bus) Leesburg west to Purcellville.
In January 1924 (CTB), a second segment was created running from VA 37 (current US 340-VA 7 Bus jct) Berryville east to the Shenandoah River, another upgrade to CR 4.
In March 1924 (CTB), the two pieces were connected. Also, sometime in 1924, VA 325 was extended south from Berryville to VA 36 (current SR 723) Millwood, replacing VA 361. This extension created the 1 block long VA 376 in Berryville as today's SR 616 was the route south from Berryville.
In January 1925 (CTB), a new piece of VA 325 was created running from VA 25 (current VA 123) Tyson's Corner northwest 2.6 miles along what was CR 2.
In May 1926 (CTB), VA 325 was extended west along VA 36 to Boyce, then south as new routing (upgrading CR 2) 5 miles to south of White Post.
In October 1926, VA 325 was replaced by the original VA 251. Today it is parts of SR 658, US 340, SR 617, SR 616, VA 7 Bus Berryville, VA 7 over the mountain and the VA 7 Business's in Purcellville and Leesburg.

VA 326 #1: Created March 1924 (CTB) as a 0.5 mile spur from VA 32 (probably SR 1001) to the courthouse in Palmyra. Appears on the 1924, 1927 and 1928 Official maps but not 1926.
It is unclear what happened to VA 326 in August 1928. It may have been decommissioned as a state route; It may have become the routing of US 15/VA 32 in the transition from US 15 running through Palmyra to the east edge. This theory fits with the fact that the Rivanna River bridge is dated 1931, meaning US 15 cut over via the courthouse to its new alignment from 1928-31.
As far as I can tell, VA 326 did NOT become a VA 7xx in the 1928-33 system (would've been 714).
VA 326 #2: Created in June 1932 (CTB Minutes) as an unidentified new primary route. The 1932 VDOT County Atlas shows VA 326 as a stub running 0.8 miles from US 60/VA 10 (current US 460) to Evergreen. In July 1933 this became VA 132. Today it is part of SR 630.

Longwood College, Farmville (Prince Edward County)
Total Length: 0.26 mile






Creation: The Virginia Teachers College in Farmville was considered for state mileage in 1932, but nobody came to request it; It appears that VA 328 was born in Oct 1958 (CTB), when the following streets were added to the state highway system at Longwood College: Chambers St from Pine St to Spruce St (0.064 mi); Spruce St from Chambers north (0.026 mi); Spruce St from Chambers St south to power plant (0.042 mi); Tabb Hall Circle from Chambers/Spruce northeast (0.033 mi). This totaled 0.165 miles of VA 328. This is the 2nd VA 328.
Adjustments:In Oct 1964 (CTB), 0.085 miles of unspecified road was added to VA 328 and 0.04 miles of unspecified road were deleted. This was a net gain of 0.045 miles to VA 328.
Posting: I drove this in December 2006 and saw no 328 postings.
Comments: Longwood College is right in downtown Farmville. It appeared during my visit that some roads on campus were removed. VA 328 does not appear on official maps.

From: Goochland (Goochland County)

Total Length: 1.73 miles  






Creation: I know of no other modern VA 329, and the prison looks old enough to have been around in 1938 when this number would've been assigned.
Adjustments: In Nov 1955 (CTB), 0.047 miles of a new road connecting the two entrances to the prison and parallel to VA 6 were added to VA 329.
In March 1958 (CTB), three more segments totaling 0.316 miles were added to VA 329.
Posting: No VA 329 signs of any kind, but VA 6 is identified at the intersection.
Comment: The publicly drivable (0.25 mile) portion of VA 329 that is not within barbed wire gates is very small.

Comment: Mailing address says it is on SR 629, which runs east of US 460. I found this in the VDOT route log, and had never noticed it in the county atlas books before. The route connects SR 624 and SR 800 and runs by the prison as opposed to running to it.
VA 330
Mapmikey, 2007
Previous VA 330's:
VA 330 #1: The State Teachers College at Fredericksburg received 0.38 miles of state mileage in July 1932.
VA 330 was assigned as the number by Dec 1938 (CTB).
In Dec 1980 (CTB), VA 330 (then 0.44 miles) was removed from the primary system.
I have never seen a map showing this VA 330.
The State Teachers College in Fredericksburg became Mary Washington College (now University) in 1944.
James Madison University, City of Harrisonburg
Total Length: 2.99 miles






Creation: The Virginia Teachers College in Harrisonburg received 0.82 miles of state mileage in 1932 and probably received a number in 1938. Appears on VDOT maps in 1988 (first year Harrisonburg insets returned to official state maps), which show VA 331 in campus areas west of I-81; This is the 2nd VA 331.
Adjustments: In May 1940 (CTB), the mileage of VA 331 was increased to 0.712 miles on the Madison College campus and also a separate 0.4 mile section off SR 659 (now VA 253) near Port Republic serving what is now the JMU farm was created.
In March 1952 (CTB), an unspecified length of VA 331 was removed from the primary system.
In Nov 1970 (CTB), 1.11 miles of unspecified roads were added to VA 331.
Around 1994, VA 331 was expanded east of I-81, on University Blvd. from Driver Dr. near SR 659 to SR 710 Reservoir Rd with a connection across I-81 via Carrier Dr.

Posting: No postings in the Harrisonburg area (see comment); I drove by the Port Republic section on 4/21/02, and there were 331 mini-circle signs (similar to how SR's are posted out there). It was still posted this way in 2012.
Comment: The farm segment was still not paved as late as 2007.
Information from TS Smith:
VA 331 in the independent city of Harrisonburg does not have an interchange with I-81. This route is not marked in Harrisonburg. Also, VA 331 appears south of Harrisonburg, just north of the unincorporated town of Port Republic, leading west from SR 659. This route IS marked by a rectangular sign. This route leads to a farm associated with JMU. As to why they used the same number, I'm not sure.

This is the only example I can think of where a college route number is used at a remote location of some unit of the campus. For instance, the Virginia Arboretum (Blandy Farm) in Boyce is part of UVA, but its road is SR 750. Community Colleges with multiple campuses get different numbers at each campus.
Kevin MacNutt offered this comment in February 2005:
To give some further information on VA 331 for James Madison University, for as long as I can remember the farm route had always been marked with the county style 331 sign. In the 1980's a similar sign existed within the city of Harrisonburg back when University Blvd. ended at Reservoir Street, before it was extended to US 33 in 1988 (incidentally, that section of Reservoir Street was a one lane road running though farm fields back then; it is now four lanes wide as well as being urban sprawl central). From US 33 until about a 1/2 mile South of Reservoir Street, VA 331 has been swallowed by the city of Harrisonburg as well as the continuous eastward movement of urban sprawl.

The State Teachers College at Harrisonburg became Madison College in 1938 and JMU in 1976.

Western State Hospital, City of Staunton
Total Length: 0.26 mile  






Creation: The Western State Hospital and Western State Sanitorium off today's US 11-250 Staunton received 1.2 miles of state mileage in 1932 but did not receive a number until around 1938. This is the 2nd VA 333.
Adjustments: By 1975, a separate piece of VA 333 was in place running from SR 644 around to US 250 near I-81 which is where the State Hospital relocated (hosptal started using this property about 1950). The original hospital by US 11-250 became the Staunton Correction Center.
In 1996, the facility at US 250 and I-81 was abandoned and is now closed off. Part of VA 333 used the entrance road to the Frontier Culture Museum. Today the on-line interactive VDOT map shows the entire driveway to the museum as VA 333 and also on Augusta Woods Dr which ducks under I-81 (this road is posted as SR 1xxx).
In 2003, the Staunton Correctional Center was closed and a piece of the property has become condominiums and for some unknown reason, renumbered as VA 317. The property not part of the condos is not driveable.
Posting: None
Comment: The Staunton Correctional Facility is a very picturesque facility at the intersection of US 11-250.
The relocated Western State Hospital Facility ended up being named for one of the most prolific practicers of eugenics in American history prior to its abandonment.

Creation: The State Colony for Epileptics and Feeble-Minded received 0.85 miles of state mileage in 1932 but did not receive a number until at least 1938. Appears on VDOT maps since 1944. Initially ran only on the facility property, connecting to VA 130. This should be the 2nd VA 334.
Adjustments: In January 1966 (CTB) VA 334 underwent numerous additions/deletions: 10 unidentified segments totaling 2.12 miles were added to VA 334, while 5 unidentified segments totaling 0.75 miles were removed from VA 334. This gave VA 334 a net gain of 1.37 miles.
In 2005, VA 334 was extended out of the facility to meet the rerouted VA 210. This replaced a piece of VA 210.
Posting: Full shields at VA 210 plus one at its original north end; white rectangles throughout the facility.
Comment: VA 334 is fully drivable within the facility. There are other roads in the facility posted as SR 1xxx routes. Note that VA 311 #2 was not part of VA 334s inital routing as VA 311 only led to the facility.
This facility (and presumably VA 334) is scheduled to close between 2014 and 2020.

Creation: The earliest explicit reference to VA 337 is the April 1939 CTB Minutes referencing Hampton Blvd railroad underpass. The first official map to show the 337 number was the 1944 issue. I believe the initial routing of VA 337 was given state mileage in August 1932 CTB without number as 6.5 miles within the city of Norfolk. It ran from VA 170 (current US 460) Granby St west along 21st St to Hampton, then north to the 98th St ferry (now within Norfolk Naval Base) to Newport News. VA 337 from Downtown Norfolk out to Norfolk Naval Base using Hampton Blvd. was not numbered immediately before, though it was once part of US 17 before 1931.
Adjustments:About 1942, VA 337 was extended south with VA 170 to central Norfolk, then replaced US 460 through South Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Suffolk. VA 337 west ended at today's VA 10-32 which still carried US 58 then.

In March 1953 (CTB), VA 337 west was extended from VA 10-32 over old US 58 to its current end with US 58 Bus.
In May 1953 (CTB), VA 337 in South Norfolk was routed on Bainbridge Ave, instead of Liberty St. The Bainbridge route had been VA 337 ALT.
In November 1962 (CTB), VA 337 was rerouted in Norfolk to its current use of Brambleton Ave to Hampton Blvd, replacing VA 599. Until then, VA 337 used 21st St to get to Hampton Blvd.
In 1980, VA 337 was extended east from Hampton Blvd to the terminus of I-564, replacing a piece of VA 170.
Around 1991, VA 337 was moved onto I-464's northernmost quarter-mile.

I-264 (exit 9), US 460 ALT, VA 337: 0 - 0
US 58, VA 337: 1.49 - 1.49

Creation: First appears on Official maps in 1988 when the Downtown Norfolk inset was first included. VA 337 ALT was originally on split alignments from Brambleton, with SB using Duke St and NB using Boush St.
Adjustments:
In the early 2000s, Boush St was reconstructed Boush St as a 2-way, 4-lane divided street all the way to Brambleton Ave. VA 337 SB was removed from Duke St beginning with the 2011 VDOT Traffic Log.
Posting: None
Comments: Boush St. and Waterside Dr. in downtown Norfolk. Curiously, the Norfolk route effectively "overlaps" the Portsmouth route.

Creation: Appeared around 1940. This is the 2nd VA 339.
Adjustments: None
Posting: None at US 60, none internally
Comments: Appears on VDOT officials (on the main map, NOT in insets) from 1941-1959.
Mapmikey drove this in October 2005. Only a very short segment is accessible to the public - enter, circle the first parking area (behind unmanned gate) and exit back to US 60. Outside normal business hours VA 339 is probably even shorter - a tight circle 50 feet off US 60.

VA 340: Appeared in July 1933 as a 2-piece extension of US 340. 1. from today's VA 252 Middlebrook to US 11 near Greenville to VA 3 (curr US 522) in Front Royal. This replaced VA 809 from Middlebrook to Montivideo and VA 815 from Elkton to Front Royal. Montivideo to Elkton had been part of VA 17. 2. Rockland to Berryville (today's SR 658 to White Post and US 340 to Berryville), replacing VA 825.

In July 1936, VA 340 was renumbered as VA 12 from Greenville to White Post. The piece from Middlebrook to US 11 became part of VA 292 #1 (curr SR 701).
Today this is SR 701 and US 11 to today's US 340 to Waynesboro. From there VA 340 followed Wayne St north to Ohio St west to Florence Ave north to either Bridge Ave or Ash St east to Sherwood Ave which turns into SR 865, heading north to Mt. Meridian, then east along today's VA 256 to Grottoes, but VA 340 used Circle Ln to cross the South River onto 4th St. VA 340 then turned north on 4th Avenue (now SR 825 Dogwood Ave) to go to Port Republic. VA 340 did the old zig-zag routing that VA 253 rounds off at the South River, following VA 253 to SR 672 Pineville Rd, which VA 340 used to get to US 33 (now SR 996) near Montevideo. VA 340 duplexed with US 33 east to Elkton, entering town on today's US 33 Business. VA 340 split from US 33 on Spotswood Ave over to current US 340. VA 340 followed US 340, then 340 Business from Elkton through Stanly to Luray. Northward from Luray VA 340 followed US 340 until it reached the Karo area. VA 340 cut east on today's SR 607 over to SR 649 Browntown Rd which VA 340 followed north into Front Royal VA 340 followed today's 340 to Main St
The short second piece of VA 340 used SR 658 (which zig-zags) to Stone Bridge, Greenway Court and White Post. VA 340 picked up today's US 340 to Waterloo
VA 340Y: Formed triangle at US 11-US 340 jct. Was US 340 SB. I have seen no evidence this was previously VA 12Y. VA 340Y Was not posted and was physically destroyed in 1999 when intersection was reconfigured. VDOT route logs of 2001 and 2003 erroneously show this as still active.
VA 340Y was finally officially abandoned in the Dec 2009 CTB minutes.
