What's Being Done

The existing Princess Anne Road is a two-lane road just east of Dam Neck Road to the Virginia Beach Municipal Center. This project will widen the existing highway to a four-lane facility with turn lanes and a wide raised median to accommodate future widening when necessary.

Also included in the project are plans to construct an approximate seven-tenths of a mile section of Nimmo Parkway, providing a connector between Princess Anne Road and Holland Road.

An additional section of Nimmo Parkway, between Holland Road and General Booth Boulevard, will be built under a separate project.

Why is this road being built?

The City of Virginia Beach requested the improvements be made to this corridor in November 1994. The project is also in accordance with the VDOT Six-Year Improvement Program and the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission’s 2026 Regional Transportation Plan.

The 2002 traffic volume on Princess Anne Road is approximately 22,000 vehicles on a typical weekday. By 2021, it is anticipated that the volume will increase to approximately 51,000 vehicles per day.


The proposed widening will greatly improve traffic operations and reduce congestion along this segment of Princess Anne Road.
