VDOT executes $31 million contract to widen road from two to four lanes

VIRGINIA BEACH – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) just executed a $31 million contract with American Infrastructure-VA Inc. of Glen Allen, Va., to widen approximately 2½ miles of Holland Road in Virginia Beach, from Dam Neck Road to Nimmo Parkway.

The project will increase the capacity and safety of this section of Holland Road by enlarging the thoroughfare to a continuous four-lane divided roadway. Improvements to the Dam Neck Road and Holland Road intersection are also included in the project.

The expansion will create an additional north-south continuous roadway in this part of Virginia Beach. Holland Road is classified as an “urban minor arterial” road, and it passes through a general residential area.

Although the project is managed by VDOT, the department will be working closely with the City of Virginia Beach throughout construction, scheduled to begin in November.

The project is expected to be complete in late 2017. For more information, visit
