Description:
State Route 337 Alternate is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of Virginia, lying entirely within the city of Portsmouth. It is an alternate route of State Route 337, but only intersects SR 337 at its west end.

Route description

SR 337 Alternate begins at the intersection of Portsmouth Boulevard (SR 337 and U.S. Route 460 Alternate) and Turnpike Road, and runs northeast on Turnpike Road. It turns north on Harbor Drive and ends at the London Boulevard overpass, where U.S. Route 58 joins and the Martin Luther King Freeway begins.
