Photo: VA 351 coming to its end at Buckroe Beach. This area is MUCH different today... (Adam Froehlig, May 2003)
From:  City of Newport News
To:  Buckroe Beach (City of Hampton)
Total Length:  8.79 miles  
ROUTE LOG
US 60: 0 - 0
Hampton-Newport News Line: 1.51 - 1.51
VA 415: 3.05 - 4.54
VA 134: 0.87 - 5.41
US 258: 1.41 - 6.82

VA 169 EB: 0.60 - 8.72
END VA 351: 0.07 - 8.79
Creation:  VA 351 was created In June 1944 (based on an item in the Jan 1945 CTB), as a renumbering of part of VA 168, plus new primary routing west of King St all the way to US 60. It ran more or less the way it does now. This is the 3rd VA 351.
Adjustments:  About 1975, VA 351 was extended west to the newly created US 60 EB routing along Huntington Ave
Although the 2009 traffic log still has VA 351 ending a block east of VA 169 Mallory, a VA 351 END shield was moved to Mallory between 2003-2007, then no END posting at all after that.
Improvements:  paved upon inception; no multilane segments
Posted:  Fully posted although poorly posted in Buckroe Beach itself.
Multiplexes:  VA 169 (0.60 mi)
Legislative names:  None
Other names:  39th Ave (Newport News); Pembroke Ave (Hampton)
Scenic Byway:  No segments
Truck route: A VA 351 TRUCK used to be signed in Hampton, following King St, Settlers Landing Rd, and Woodland Rd, presumably to keep trucks off the Pembroke Ave bridge over Hampton Creek. As of July 2005, only the trailblazer on US 258 SB remained of this TRUCK route which was no longer posted by 2007.
Comment:  VA 351 does not connect directly to US 60 WB split, VA 143 or I-664 (although there are signs on how to make the connection from 60 WB and 143). It is also blown off completely by I-64.

In June 1944, VA 351 was renumbered as part of VA 168. Today it is a little VA 165 and all of VA 170.
