|Previous VA 396's:
VA 396 #1: Appears in the October 1926 VDOT Route Log with the entry "see 251". VA 39 would have crossed VA 251 in Waynesboro. Thus, VA 396 was a briefly existing renumbering of VA 334 from 1 mile west of Waynesboro through Stuarts Draft to VA 33 (now US 11) near Greenville. It is less clear if VA 396 also replaced the piece of VA 334 west of US 11 along today's SR 701, as 334 was also in the same route log as "see 251" which strongly implies 334 was still around (other routes decommissioned prior to this time were not listed in the log pointing you to their replacements).
So in Oct 1926 VA 396 became VA 251. Today, it is essentially US 340. I have seen no map showing 396. Only 334 or 251.
