HOLLAND ROAD CONNECTION PROJECT READY TO BEGIN
Construction scheduled to start next week

VIRGINIA BEACH – A project to provide more capacity and increase safety along Holland Road is scheduled to start construction on April 6, 2015. Contract crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be constructing an additional lane in each direction to the existing two-lane road.

Work on Holland Road will begin between the intersections of Dam Neck Road and Winterberry Lane. Crews will be clearing the area of trees and placing underground pipes, before grading and paving the new roadway.

As construction moves along the corridor from Dam Neck Road to Nimmo Parkway, traffic shifts will occur as sections of temporary and new pavement are completed. Lane closures, when necessary, will only occur during off-peak hours, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Crews will work Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. the week of April 6, weather conditions permitting.

American Infrastructure-VA, Inc. was awarded the $31 million contract for the new four-lane divided roadway connecting Dam Neck Road to Nimmo Parkway in October 2014. The project will continue over the next 30 months, with completion scheduled for October 2017.

Access to adjacent neighborhoods and businesses will remain throughout the life of the project. To learn more, please visit http://www.virginiadot.org/hollandroad.
