This project is located in the city of Virginia Beach, from north of Dam Neck Road to south of Nimmo Parkway, a distance of approximately 2.5 miles.

The general area consists of primarily residential housing. 

The purpose of this project is to provide more capacity for traffic, increase safety along Holland Road and reduce travel delays by adding an additional lane in each direction.

Holland Road has an Urban Minor Arterial Classification in Virginia Beach and is currently in fair condition. 

Holland Road varies between a two-lane and three-lane roadway. 

After construction, Holland Road will be a continuous four-lane divided roadway from Dam Neck Road to Nimmo Parkway.

Construction for this project began in November 2014. 

This project will provide an additional north-south continuous roadway in this area of Virginia Beach. 

It will also feature stamped concrete crosswalks and bike paths.

The traveling public and area residents should expect some changes in the traffic pattern, as well as typical delays during construction.

February 2018: If the weather cooperates, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) projects that Allan Myers will complete paving on the mainline by the middle of March, and the project will be 100 percent complete by May.

Traffic Alerts

As construction moves along the corridor from Dam Neck Road to Nimmo Parkway, traffic shifts and flagging operations 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., weather conditions permitting. 


The speed limit has been reduced to 35 mph in this work zone for the duration of the project. View the release here.

Barberry Lane permanently closed Feb. 18, 2016, as part of the project. View the release here

Left-Turn Lane Access For Neighborhoods

Once the Holland Road Connector is complete, there will be no median breaks unless there is a left turn lane.

Residents and motorists will have to proceed to the nearest left turn lane and make a U-turn to access their neighborhood.

Drivers can also navigate using Dam Neck Road or Nimmo Parkway so they enter Holland Road from the correct direction to make a right turn into the neighborhood.

Likewise, motorists will only be able to turn right onto Holland Road from any street that does not have a left turn lane / median break.

This situation is unavoidable due to engineering and safety guidelines that must be adhered to for the Holland Road design.
