US 62  thwarted
Previous US 62's: US 62: During the formation of the US route system in 1925-26, Kentucky complained that they were the only state without an x0 route (guess they hadn't heard of South Carolina). This led AASHO to try to find a different number for US 52 in Virginia which was to run from WV to newport News via Covington, Lexington, Lynchburg, Burkeville and Richmond.
AASHO approved US 62 to replace US 52 in Virginia on Jan 14, 1926.
Kentucky objected to US 62 and it became US 60 on Aug 11, 1926.
