|US 33W A Volunteer Effort|
|Previous US 33W's:||
US 33W: Officially requested by Tennessee on Sept 18, 1933 to run from Harlan KY south via Pennington Gap and Jonesville within Virginia to eventually meet up with requested US 33E 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.
There is correspondence with AASHO regarding US 33W 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.
