The roadway is approximately parallel to I-64, which 250 crosses from time to time.
From west to east, 250 continues as Ivy Road, which first becomes University Avenue and later West Main Street. 250 turns onto Ridge/McIntire Road, and then onto High Street. It joins the bypass in Charlottesville just east of the Free Bridge.
The first section of this road was completed in 1953. The city and county both agreed to extend the road at a joint meeting in February 1957. .

The business and bypass routes diverge where Ivy Road meets the Route 29 Bypass, forming the western end of the Route 250 Bypass. The bypass is cosigned with the Route 29 Bypass until the 29 bypass diverges to rejoin Route 29 Business. The 250 bypass continues to be limited access until it joins the business route in Charlottesville just east of the Free Bridge.
A bridge that carries the road over the Buckingham Branch railroad is deteriorating, leading to weight restrictions of 15 tons.
