In Oct 1966 (CTB), VA 174 was officially decommissioned. US 60 to VA 143 was obliterated by I-64 (and may have physically been gone sooner than this), while VA 143 to VA 238 became the responsibility of Yorktown Naval Weapons Station. However, VA 174 remained on county maps in a reduced form through at least 1969.
VA 174 disappeared from the main side of official maps and insets from 1944-59.
