TheGrassGuy:
John Mosby and William Byrd highways are no more. Their new names are the Little River Turnpike and the Leesburg Pike respectively, which are really just their original names before segregationists changed them.

1995hoo:
Harry Byrd, not William Byrd.

What about Jefferson Davis Highway in Arlington?  What about it statewide on US 1 along with Lee Highway on US 11, 211, and 29?

this was a Loudoun County change, not statewide.

1995hoo:
Arlington already renamed their portion of Jeff Davis Highway as Richmond Highway.

Fairfax County is exploring renaming Lee Highway and Lee–Jackson Memorial Highway. I expect Loudoun's action will result in the latter becoming Little River Turnpike.
