The road was built in the early 1940s as part of the Pentagon Road Network, a network of highway-like roads around the Pentagon that employs tens of thousands of people. The intersecting roads of the SR-110 were also part of it at the time. In 1964 the road was handed over to the state of Virginia. Between 2002 and 2004, the highway was moved a little further from the Pentagon for security reasons. The highway originally ran just 50 meters from the building. The old route is now a car park.
