Planning for the road dates back to the late 1950's. A southern alignment and a northern alignment were both under consideration by the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads.

In June 1959, the State Highway Commission opted for the southern route. Consultants had recommended the northern route. [1]

The course is approximately east-west. From the west, it enters the county at Afton, continues eastward near Charlottesville, and enters Fluvanna County to the east, past Keswick. Throughout the county, it closely follows the path of U.S. Route 250.
