US 48 begins in Virginia at I-81 and heads west toward West Virginia. This route was recently designated US 48 and is intended to apply to a new highway linking I-79 in West Virginia with I-81 in Virginia. Apparently Virginia does not intend to complete the highway, so they signed US 48 along the old two-lane alignment a few years ago. West Virginia is still actively constructing their portion of the highway though.

When we drove US 48 in June 2012, we followed the old two-lane road signed as US 48 through Virginia and a small section of West Virginia, then the new highway also now signed as US 48 as far as it had been completed.
