Route description

View south at the north end of SR 26 at US 60 and SR 605 in Bent Creek

SR 26 begins as a four-lane divided highway at a diamond interchange with US 460 and SR 24 (Richmond Highway) just north of the town of Appomattox. The roadway continues south of the expressway bypass of the town as US 460 Business (Confederate Boulevard), which leads to the Appomattox Historic District. SR 26 reduces to a two-lane undivided road and heads north as Oakville Road through northwestern Appomattox County. The state highway passes through the hamlet of Oakville. Near the northern end of SR 26, the highway descends into the narrow valley of Bent Creek. The state highway crosses the stream just south of the stream's mouth at the James River. A short distance to the north, SR 26 reaches its terminus at US 60 (James Anderson Highway) in the hamlet of Bent Creek just south of the U.S. Highway's crossing of the James River.[1][3]
