State Route 87 (SR 87) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of Virginia. Known for most of its length as Morehead Road, the state highway runs 4.10 miles (6.60 km) from the North Carolina state line, where the highway continues as North Carolina Highway 87 (NC 87), north to U.S. Route 220 (US 220) in Ridgeway in southern Henry County.
SR 87 begins at the North Carolina state line southeast of Ridgeway. The highway continues southeast as NC 87 toward Eden. SR 87 heads northwest as Morehead Road to the town of Ridgeway, within which the highway follows Morehead Avenue. In the center of town, the state highway intersects US 220 Business, which heads north on Main Street and south on Church Street. SR 87 continues northwest a short distance to its northern terminus at US 220 (Greensboro Road).
Route 87 was originally numbered State Route 106. When North Carolina extended NC 87 to the Virginia state line in the 1940 renumbering, SR 106 was renumbered SR 87 for continuity.
The entire route is in Henry County.
