SR 126 (1928-1944)[edit]

Virginia 126.svgVirginia 303 (old).svgVirginia 323 (old).svg

State Route 126 (1933-1944)
State Route 303 (1928-1933)
State Route 323 (1932-1933)
Location: Volens-Gladys
Existed: 1928–1944

State Route 126 was a westerly alternate to US 501 between Volens and Gladys, following present SR 603 from Volens to SR 40 at Cody and SR 761 (mostly the old Pittsylvania and Lynchburg Turnpike[citation needed]) from the Roanoke River south of Long Island to Gladys. The road from Cody to Long Island was never a primary state highway.

Most of the distance from Volens to Cody became State Route 303 in 1928,[2] with the remaining 1 mile (1.6 km) at the Cody end joining it in 1929.[3] 5.8 miles (9.3 km) of the northern segment were added in 1932[4][5] as State Route 323.[6] Both routes became SR 126 in the 1933 renumbering,[7] and in October 1933 the northern segment was extended south to the Roanoke River.[8] The southern segment from Volens to Cody and most of the northern segment from the Roanoke River to SR 699 were downgraded to secondary in 1943,[9] the former becoming an extension of existing SR 603,[10] and the remaining 1.8 miles (2.9 km) from SR 699 to Volens followed in 1944.[11]

SR 126 (1930-1979)[edit]

Virginia 126.svgVirginia 128.svgVirginia 319 (old).svg

State Route 126 (1948-1979)
part of State Route 128 (1933-1948)
part of State Route 319 (1930-1933)
Location: Forest-Lynchburg
Existed: 1930–1979

State Route 126 extended west from US 460 (now US 460 Business) in southwestern Lynchburg along Graves Mill Road (SR 1425 outside Lynchburg) to US 221 at Clay (east of Forest). It was mostly added to the state highway system in 1930 as part of State Route 319,[12] with the westernmost 1 mile (1.6 km) completing the route in 1932.[13] SR 319 became SR 128 in the 1933 renumbering,[7] but that route was split in 1948, with the central piece along Fort Avenue renumbered SR 297 and the western piece becoming new SR 126.[14] An easterly extension along the new Lynchburg Expressway to US 29 (now US 29 Business) was added in August 1964,[15] but two months later it instead became SR 297, with SR 126 replacing SR 297 from their intersection northeast on Fort Avenue to U.S. Route 29 Alternate (now US 29 Business), which had been part of SR 128 until 1948.[16] This extension was renumbered again in 1976, becoming part of U.S. Route 460 Business, which it remains to this day.[17] The portion of SR 126 within Lynchburg city limits became an ordinary city street in 1977,[18] and the short stub in Bedford County was downgraded to secondary in 1979.[19]

SR 127[edit]

Virginia 127.svgVirginia 43 (old).svg

State Route 127 (1933-1948)
part of State Route 43 (1928-1933)
Location: Evington-Forest
Existed: 1928–1948

State Route 127 extended south from US 460 (now US 221) at Forest to SR 24 at Evington along current secondary SR 811. The road was added to the state highway system as part of SR 43 in 1928.[20][21] SR 43 was split among SR 24 and SR 127 in the 1933 renumbering,[7] and the latter was downgraded to secondary in 1948.[22]

State Route 132 (1933-1943)
State Route 326 (1932-1933)
Location: US 460-Evergreen
Existed: 1932–1943

State Route 132 ran southwest from US 460 southeast of Appomattox to Evergreen along part of current SR 630.[23] It was added to the state highway system in 1932[24] as State Route 326,[25] became SR 132 in the 1933 renumbering,[7] and was downgraded to secondary in 1943,[26] initially becoming an extension of existing SR 681.[citation needed]

SR 135[edit]

Virginia 135.svgVirginia 318 (old).svg

State Route 135 (1933-1945)
State Route 318 (1930-1933)
Location: Green Bay-Farmville
Existed: 1930–1945

State Route 135 extended from US 360 at Green Bay north to US 460 southeast of Farmville along current SR 696. 5.5 miles (8.9 km) from the Green Bay end was added to the state highway system in 1930 as State Route 318,[27] which was extended north 12 mile (0.80 km) in 1931[28] and the remaining 6 miles (9.7 km) in 1932.[29] It was renumbered SR 135 in the 1933 renumbering[7] and downgraded to secondary in 1945.[30] (SR 135Y, a 1 mile (1.6 km) connection northeast to US 360[31] along original SR 20, which US 360 replaced,[citation needed] swapped with SR 135 by 1940,[32] and its original route was downgraded to SR 694 in 1943.[33])

SR 152[edit]

Virginia 152.svgVirginia 322 (old).svg

State Route 152 (1933-1943)
State Route 322 (1931-1933)
Location: South Boston
Existed: 1931–1942

State Route 152 was a spur from Wilborn Avenue (now US 501 southbound) in South Boston to the former South Boston Airport, following Edmunds Street and Lomax Avenue. The route was added to the state highway system in 1931 as State Route 322[34] (the portion within South Boston limits was defined in 1932[35]), which became SR 152 in the 1933 renumbering[7] and was downgraded to secondary SR 852[citation needed] in 1942.[36][37]

SR 158[edit]

Virginia 158.svgVirginia 151.svgVirginia 313 (old).svgVirginia 182 (old).svg

State Route 158 (1947-1970)
part of State Route 151 (1933-1947)
part of State Route 313 (1928-1933)
State Route 182 (1927-1928)
Location: Sardis-Shady Lane-Colleen
Existed: 1927–1970

State Route 158 extended north and east along present SR 778 from US 60 between Sandidges and Sardis via Lowesville to Shady Lane, and then continued east to US 29 at Colleen along present SR 56.

The first 1.75 miles (2.82 km) of road west from Shady Lane was added to the state highway system in 1927 as State Route 182[38][39] (a spur of SR 18, which followed present SR 151 through Shady Lane). It became State Route 313 in the 1928 renumbering,[40] and a 1 mile (1.6 km) extension to the county line at Lowesville was added later that year, along with a second section northeast from current US 60.[41] The 1.1 miles (1.8 km) gap at Lowesville was filled in 1930, making a continuous route from near Sardis to Shady Lane.[42] In 1931 or 1932, SR 313 was extended northeast from Shady Lane to SR 18 (now SR 6) near Nellysford, replacing a former alignment of SR 18 through Lanes Ford and the entirety of SR 315;[43][44] a 7.7 miles (12.4 km) gap in this addition was filled in 1932.[45] The entire length of SR 313 became SR 151 in the 1933 renumbering,[7] but in 1947 it was split at Shady Lane due to the realignment of US 29 (which had replaced that part of SR 18). SR 151 was rerouted south from Shady Lane on what had been US 29 towards Amherst, while the portion west and south from Shady Lane was combined with old US 29 east to Colleen to become a new SR 158.[46]

The part of SR 158 west of Shady Lane was downgraded to secondary in 1954.[47] The remainder kept its number until 1970, when it became part of SR 56[48] in place of a proposed more direct alignment on SR 655 through Roseland, which had not been a primary highway since SR 14 was removed from it in about 1930.

SR 283[edit]

Virginia 283.svgVirginia 306 (old).svg

State Route 283 (1933-1943)
part of State Route 306 (1930-1933)
Location: Dentons Corner-north
Existed: 1930–1943

State Route 283 extended north from SR 56 north of Dentons Corner along present secondary SR 602 in the direction of Howardsville, ending about 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Glenmore.

The first portion of SR 283 became a state highway in 1930 when SR 306 was extended northwest from Buckingham, overlapping SR 13 to Dentons Corner and then continuing north for 2.5 miles (4.0 km).[49] A further extension of 1.1 miles (1.8 km) in 1932[50] took it to the present junction of SR 601 near Mount Vinco.[51]

In the 1933 renumbering, this extension of SR 306 became SR 283, the highest state route number assigned at the time, with the exception of the southernmost 1 mile (1.6 km), which was instead part of SR 56.[7] It was extended a further 3 miles (4.8 km) in 1937[52] and 1.2 miles (1.9 km) in 1938,[53] but only four years later the northern 3.1 miles (5.0 km) were downgraded to secondary[54] as an extension of existing SR 602.[51] The job was finished the next year, in 1943.[55]

SR 297[edit]

State Route 297
Location: west of Lynchburg
Existed: 1935–1942

State Route 297 was the designation for Linkhorne Drive in what is now part of the city of Lynchburg, running east from Old Forest Road (then SR 291) at Forest Hill to a dead end and a proposed connection to Langhorne Road (US 501) barely inside Lynchburg.[56] It was added to the state highway system in 1935[57] and downgraded to secondary in 1942.[58][59]

A construction project which has been under way for several years has been recently completed from a point on Route U. S. 29 north of Amherst to another point on Route U. S. 29 at the village of Colleen. This newly completed highway is of the most modern construction and eliminates a "dog's leg" and a very crooked piece of road on Route U. S. 29 between the same termini. Therefore, it was: Moved by Mr. Rogers, seconded by Mr. Rawls; that (1) The highway recently constructed, which starts at a point approximately one and one-half miles north of the N.C.L. of Amherst and extends over a portion of State Route 150 to the village of Colleen, be numbered Route U. S. 29; and that (2) Present Route U. S. 29 from its southern junction with the new highway to an intersection with State Route 151 at Piney River, be renumbered State Route 151; and that (3) The sections of State Route 151 and of U. S. Route 29 between Route U. S. 60 and Colleen, be renumbered State Route 158. Motion carried.
