What's Being Done

The construction of Nimmo Parkway between Holland Road and General Booth includes approximately 1.7 miles of new roadway, including a 1500-foot bridge over West Neck Creek and adjacent wetlands. The project will provide major congestion relief on the existing roadway network in the vicinity of the Virginia Beach Municipal Center. The project will be bicycle and pedestrian friendly, with widened outside travel lanes for on-street bicycle use and five foot sidewalks for bicycle and pedestrian use.

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 proposed improvements will greatly improve traffic operations and reduce congestion along Princess Anne Road. It will also allow for alternate access around the Virginia Beach municipal center.
