Photo: The entirety of VA 283 (Mapmikey, May 2008)
US 23 Bus: 0 - 0
US 23, US 58 ALT: 0.36 - 0.36
Creation: Appeared as a replacement for US 23-58 ALT in 1994, and was designated to do this in the August 1991 CTB Minutes. Ran as it does today. This is the 2nd VA 283.
Improvements: Paved upon inception; 4-lane expressway since inception.
Posted: Does not seem to be posted at US 23-58 ALT. In fact, at the offramp from US 23 NB, it is signed as US 58 ALT Business. Dave reports in June 2002 that there are no VA 283 signs anywhere which was still true when I finally got out there several years later, and still true as of this writing.
Legislative names: NONE
Other names: Unknown
Scenic Byway: No segments
Comment: Provides direct access from US 58 ALT to Norton, if you are opposed to using VA 74.
