Route description

SR 457 begins at a five-way intersection with US 220 Business and SR 57 in the independent city of Martinsville. Memorial Boulevard heads northwest–southeast with US 220 Business in both directions and eastbound SR 57 heading southeast. Westbound SR 57 heads southwest on Fayette Street. SR 457 starts by following a pair of two-way streets; eastbound SR 457 follows two-lane undivided Church Street and westbound SR 457 uses Fayette Street through a residential area. At the west end of downtown Martinsville, the eastbound highway turns north onto four-lane divided Market Street. The two directions of the state highway come together at the intersection of Market and Fayette streets.[1][2]

SR 457 follows Market Street to Commonwealth Boulevard. The state highway turns east onto the four-lane divided highway and meets the eastern end of SR 174 (Liberty Street). SR 457 passes under Franklin Street and crosses over the Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail. The state highway passes Martinsville High School and reduces to a two-lane undivided road at Fairy Street before reaching Chatham Road adjacent to Hooker Field, home of the Martinsville Mustangs of minor league baseball. Chatham Road leads south to SR 57 and US 58 Business, which leads east toward US 58 and Danville. SR 457 turns north onto Chatham Road and leaves the city of Martinsville. The state highway is known as Old Chatham Road in Henry County, where the highway follows a winding path before reaching its eastern terminus at SR 57 (Chatham Road).[1][2]
