WV 94 #2: Appeared between 1941-46 as an upgrade to CR 3 running as a spur from WV 5 Burnsville south to Gem.
By 1956, WV 94 went back to being CR 3. Today it is part of WV 5 from Gem to 1st St in Burnsville, then destroyed routing across today's I-79, then Depot St around to Bridge St across the now-closed bridge over to CR 5/11 Main St.

WV 94 #3: Appeared about 1968 as new construction from I-64 through Huntington and across a new Ohio River bridge. However, a 1967 aerial view shows the road open from I-64 to Msdison Ave first. I do not know if this segment was WV 94 from the getgo or not.
Between 1977-80, WV 94 was redesignated as part of US 52.
