US 33E  A Volunteer Effort
Previous US 33E's: US 33E: Officially requested by Tennessee on Sept 18, 1933 to run wholly concurrent with US 23 from Cumberland KY south via Appalachia, Big Stone Gap and Gate City within Virginia to eventually meet up with requested US 33W in Asheville NC.
This seems to be a parallel but non-coordinated effort with Kentucky which sought to have a US 33 run from Harlan KY south via Pennington Gap and Jonesville (this was US 33W in Tennessee's request).
There was confusion on AASHO's part regarding Tennessee's request, in that they thought US 33E was either intended to be a US 23E (a typo) or later to elimnate US 23.
There is correspondence with AASHO regarding US 33E through late December 1933, then nothing further. Note that in an August 1934 letter to AASHO, Virginia was opposed to ANY suffixed route in ANY state. So it is unlikey the US 33E-US 33W scheme would've been welcomed by Virginia.
