Celebrating our two-lane highways of yesteryear…And the joys of driving them today!

Recommended Posts

Drove US 48 end to end a few weeks ago, at least the part that has been built and signed. The route was designated US 48 pretty recently (it's the third time 48 has been used for a route) and much of the route through West Virginia hasn't been completed yet. It starts in the east at I-81 in northern Virginia and follows a two-lane over the mountains into West Virginia. After meandering through Wardensville, it becomes a four-lane divided, but with no traffic and some very pretty views (even in super-oppressive heat). After about a half hour we reached the current end of the road. Photos are here.

Nice. Way to hit the lesser-known routes. Looks like the VA portion is just State Route 55 with US 48 signs on it. -Jim

Amazing that anyone is signing new US-routes, after so many have been decomissioned.
