On the map, this route appears to be only five miles long, from Mullens to Maben. The portion of WV 97 between Maben and I-64/I-77 at Beckley used to be numbered WV 54. If you know anything else about WV 54, please E-mail me.
WV 55
US 19, Nicholas
Virginia State Line, Hardy
Nicholas, Greenbrier, Pocahontas, Randolph, Pendleton, Grant, Hardy
Appears to be a continuation of VA 55. Originally ended at US 220 at Moorefield in Hardy County. In the 1970s or 1980s, WV 55 was extended westward to its current terminus. All but six miles at the extreme western end of that route was multiplexed onto existing routes, and that portion used to be numbered WV 43. This begs the question -- why? Why not just number that western portion 191, 201, or something else which reflects the existing routes in the area (US 19, WV 20, WV 41)? Or why not retain the WV 43 designation? The apparent reason is because WV 55 is designated as a scenic corridor, and it carries the same route number for continuity's sake.
WV 56
There is no WV 56. Formerly, WV 56 was located in Jackson County, between WV 2 and I-77. This highway is now numbered WV 2.
