VA 397 #1: Appeared in June 1926 (CTB) as new primary routing, running as a cutoff from US 60/VA 39 north of Lee Hall to US 17/VA 391 (now VA 238) Lebanon Church.
In Aug 1928, VA 397 was renumbered as VA 519. Today only a sliver of this is public road, right at VA 238. Over to VA 143 is now part of the Yorktown Naval Station Annex. Between VA 143 and US 60 is physically destroyed as a result of building I-64.
