The W3R route from Mount Vernon to Yorktown has been designated the "Washington-Rochambeau Highway" and is marked as specified by the Virginia General Assembly in 1980 Session 9 Chapter 121 H 93.

The Expédition Particulière Commemorative Cantonment Society has posted photos of many of Virginia's W3R historical roadside markers.
