From:  City of Staunton
To:  Staunton Correctional Facility
Total Length:  0.26 miles  






Creation:  Showed up around 2010 as a renumbering of part of VA 333. This is the 3rd VA 317.
Adjustments:  None
Posting:  None
Comment:  This is a puzzler. The Staunton Correctional Facility closed several years ago. This road leads to a condo development. And if it somehow rated remaining in the primary system, why not still part of VA 333?

VA 317 #1:  Created December 1930 (CTB minutes) as a newly numbered route. Ran from VA 18 (curr US 29) Madison Heights west towards Elon.
In July 1932 (CTB Minutes), VA 317 was extended west 3.75 miles to end at the current SR 635-647 jct at Pedlar Mills.
VA 317 was renumbered as VA 130 in July 1933.
VA 130 has been straightended out, thus VA 317 used SR 705 loop; SR 618 Agricola; SR 635 to Pedlar Mills

VA 317 #2:  Served 1.52 miles of roads within the Blue Ridge Sanatorium in Charlottesville. Connected directly to VA 20 just south of I-64. This was posted in a white rectangle as "RT 317". The earliest reference I could find for this route in the CTB minutes (VA 317 never appeared on VDOT official state maps) was 1946, although the hospital was assigned 0.60 miles in the July 1932 CTB Minutes.
Initially VA 317 connected only to SR 613 and not any primary route.
In May 1946 (CTB), 0.40 miles were added to VA 317 to connect to the main infirmary.
In March 1950 (CTB), VA 317 was adjusted in a non-specific manner which I believe resulted in a small net loss in mileage.
In Oct 1953 (CTB), the stone driveway from the entrance to the nurses' home (0.32 miles) was added to VA 317.
In Jan 1971 (CTB), VA 317 was reconfigured to accomodate the I-64/VA 20 interchange. VA 317 was extended over VA 20 to the rerouted VA 20.
VA 317 was decommissioned in April 2002.
