History[edit]

The road was shown on civil war maps in 1865.

The road is a north–south path connecting with Beulah road, and is designated a Snow emergency route.

In 2001, SR 618 was closed to civilian traffic, the fort Belvoir installation where traffic is regulated by the Woodlawn Gate which, as of 2001, only allowed entry from 0500-2100 Monday-Friday with a military identification card. In 2004, the gate was permanently closed to all traffic, with two jersey barriers. The intersection with Beulah road SR 613, and Kingman road was blocked with jersey barriers.

In 2009, no trespassing signs were added to the gate.

No maintenance has been done on the road since 2001, but it remains on the VDOT maintenance map.
