Route description[edit]

View east at the west end of SR 210

SR 210 begins at an intersection with SR 163 (Amherst Highway) in Madison Heights on the opposite side of the James River from Lynchburg. The state highway heads east as a two-lane road until just west of its diamond interchange with US 29 Business (Lynchburg Expressway), where the highway expands to a four-lane divided highway. SR 210's next intersection east of the expressway is with SR 334 (Colony Road). SR 334 is the access road to the Central Virginia Training Center, which was formerly the notorious Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded. SR 210 has no cross traffic until its intersection with SR 672 (Riverview Road) just west of its partial cloverleaf interchange with US 29. The state highway reduces to two lanes at the interchange's southbound ramps and reaches its eastern terminus at the northbound US 29 ramps. The roadway continues east as SR 672 (Riverview Road), which serves the peninsula of land within a bend of the James River.[1][2]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Amherst County.
