In 1949 Route 40 was relocated to eliminate a series of curves in #PatrickCounty. This was the final section of the 220-mile highway to be paved. Don’t be misled by the current photo. Plenty of curves remain on Rt. 40 in this area and it is not recommended for trucks. #TBT #SWVA pic.twitter.com/zfkzDWKsL3— VDOT (@VaDOT) October 28, 2021

Meanwhile, on I-395 last night....

This I-395 video from last night proves the end is near. The end of even any pretense that a somewhat orderly society exists & we believe in anything greater than ourselves @WTOPtraffic @ARLnowDOTcom @VaDOTNOVA @VSPPIO @drgridlock @DildineWTOP #traffic #vatraffic #drivers #395cam pic.twitter.com/qaX58D6GAc— Dave Statter (@STATter911) October 28, 2021

I wouldn't call that "SWVA." It's stretching it to call Martinsville or Roanoke SWVA. Isn't I-77 something of an unofficial cutoff point?

I've pretty much always heard Roanoke considered as being where Southwest Virginia begins.

I want to type a reaction to this, but I just cannot without literally going insane.   :pan:

Yeah I believe that Virginia Tech considers itself as part of southwest Virginia.
