Route description

SR 30 begins at an intersection with US 1 (Washington Highway) south of Doswell in northeastern Hanover County. The state highway heads east as Kings Dominion Boulevard, a two-lane road that heads east and crosses over CSX's RF&P Subdivision on a very wide bridge. Just east of the railroad crossing, SR 30 meets I-95 at a partial cloverleaf interchange Immediately to the east of the railroad crossing, SR 30 intersects SR 725 (Binns Road), which leads to the ramp from southbound I-95 to Kings Dominion. SR 30 continues east to its interchange with I-95, which includes direct ramps between southbound I-95 and the entrance to Kings Dominion. Access to the ramp from SR 30 is provided indirectly from SR 725 (Binns Road) between the railroad crossing and the interchange. At I-95, SR 30 expands to a four-lane divided highway. East of I-95, SR 30 passes between a truck stop and the parking lot of Kings Dominion, which is accessed by either Theme Park Way or the direct entrance immediately to the east. SR 30 crosses CSX's Piedmont Subdivision at grade before crossing the North Anna River into Caroline County. Just east of the river, the state highway, now known as Dawn Boulevard, passes through the hamlet of Hart Corner, which contains Meadow Event Park, the home of the Virginia State Fair starting in 2009. East of the event park, SR 30 reduces to a two-lane highway and continues east to Bowersville, also known as Dawn, where the highway intersects US 301 and SR 2 (Richmond Turnpike).[2]

SR 30 continues east into King William County, where the highway is named King William Road. The state highway passes through the hamlets of Caino, Mangohick (the site of Mangohick Church), Epworth, Pollards Corner, and Turpin before reaching its intersection with US 360 (Richmond Tappahannock Highway) in the village of Central Garage. SR 30 continues southeast through Rumford to the unincorporated county seat of King William. The King William County Courthouse, which was constructed in 1725, is the oldest continually used courthouse building in the United States. The state highway continues southeast through the hamlet of Romancoke to the town of West Point, which is located at the southeastern end of King William County where the Pamukey and Mattaponi Rivers merge to form the York River. SR 30 turns west onto four-lane 14th Street to join SR 33 in a concurrency. The two state highways cross the Eltham Bridge over the Pamunkey River into New Kent County.[2]

SR 30 and SR 33 head west as four-lane Eltham Road through the village of Croaker.[2]
