SR 641: 1.0 - 1.0
VA 285 #1: Appeared Aug 1933 (CTB) as a newly numbered route, as a spur that ran from US 60 Williamsburg eastward. In 1938 it was not connected to the new VA 168 (curr VA 143) when it was built 0.1 mile to the east and never was.
In May 1943 (CTB Minutes), VA 285 was decomissioned to SR 641.

Was there a VA 285 between July 1933 and Aug 1933?
There is a confirmed VA 287 that existed in this timeframe, which suggests there should have been a VA 285 and a VA 286 that were short lived and likely on paper only. One potential location was what turned out to be the US 60 bypass of Powhatan CH, which is shown on the 1933 Powhatan County map with a blank VA route shield. Could this have been temporarily designated as VA 285 or VA 286?
