State Route 207 (SR 207) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of Virginia. Known for most of its length as Rogers Clark Boulevard, the state highway runs 11.93 miles (19.20 km) from U.S. Route 1 (US 1) in Ruther Glen east to US 301 and SR 2 in Bowling Green. SR 207 is a divided highway connection between Interstate 95 (I-95) north of Richmond and US 301, which heads toward Fort A.P. Hill, the Northern Neck, and the Potomac River Bridge to Southern Maryland.

Route description[edit]

SR 207 begins at an intersection with US 1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) in Ruther Glen, in an area also known as Carmel Church, in western Caroline County. The state highway heads east as Rogers Clark Boulevard, a four-lane divided highway that passes through a commercial area with services catering to travellers. Within the commercial area, SR 207 has a partial cloverleaf interchange with I-95. East of Ruther Glen, the state highway heads northeast toward Bowling Green. SR 207 crosses over CSX's RF&P Subdivision and the Mattaponi River north of the village of Milford. Southwest of Bowling Green, the state highway meets the western end of SR 207 Business, which takes the name Rogers Clark Boulevard toward the town of Bowling Green. SR 207 continues east as the Bowling Green Bypass to the route's eastern terminus. The state highway crosses over US 301 and SR 2 (Richmond Turnpike) and ends at a two-way ramp between the north–south road and the bypass. The Bowling Green Bypass continues northeast as US 301 toward Fort A.P. Hill. The two-way ramp, which is part of US 301, leads to the Richmond Turnpike, which heads south toward Richmond as US 301 and SR 2 and north into the town of Bowling Green as SR 2 and US 301 Business.[1][2]

History[edit]

Virginia 613 (old).svg

Under a previous numbering system, State Route 207 was known as State Route 613 from 1929-1933. This Route 613 initially ran only from US 1 at Carmel Church to the Mattaponi River but, in 1930-31, was extended east to the current US 301 Business and State Route 2 intersection in Bowling Green. The route was renumbered in 1933 as Route 207, which itself had been a previous designation of part of what is now Route 24 near Roanoke. In addition to the current path of Route 207, the 1933 route included what is now Route 639 in Caroline County from Chilesburg to Ladysmith but this was renumbered as Route 229 by 1937. The route was enlarged by 1937 with the addition of a second section running from a point 2 miles (3.2 km) east of Bowling Green through Port Royal to an intersection with State Route 3 at Office Hall. Part of this route had been Route 229 from 1933. In 1941, this new section became part of U.S. Route 301 which it remains today.[3]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Caroline County.
