So a weird bill is currently in the Virginia House Transportation Committee. It proposes to petition AASHTO to reroute US 60 along I-64 between Exits 50 and 55 (extending an existing concurrency), then southward along US 11 to the interchange with current US 60.

What's weird about that? They want to renumber the original segment US 850.

I think I would prefer US 60-1 (remember US 17-1) over US 850.  US 850 is just a wee bit sure of the 300-mile rule.   :-D

Congressman Don Beyer might like the "850" number (despite no longer being engaged in his other line of work).

The rerouting makes as little sense as does the renumbering. a more logical rerouting would be I-64 to I-81 to the existing US 60 exit, and call existing 60 Business 60.

I agree, if they're going to extend the US 60/I-64 concurrency they might as well go all the way east of Lexington and change existing US 60 to US 60 BUSINESS.

I really don't know where US 850 came from, unless they meant to say SR 850, which would make more sense since that's the number for the segment of Midland Trail that used to be US 60 before it was put on I-64.
