Virginia 165 (North Landing Road) northbound approaching the southern terminus of Virginia 149 (Princess Ann Road) at Princess Ann in Virginia Beach. Adjacent to the North Landing Road intersection of Princess Ann Road is the Virginia Beach Government Complex. To the left Virginia 165 turns northwesterly along Princess Ann Road on a path to the city of Norfolk. Virginia 149 continues the trajectory of North Landing Road to Nimmo and General Booth Boulevard. Photo taken 04/13/01.
Guide sign on Princess Ann Road northbound at SSR 615. Princess Ann Road turns right onto Virginia SSR 615 southbound as General Booth Boulevard begins. Princess Ann Road (former Virginia SSR 615) continues southward to the North Carolina state line. There the roadway becomes North Carolina 615 southbound (Marsh Causeway) en route to Knotts Island, North Carolina. One mile to the east is the beginning of Sandbridge Road (former SSR 629). The U.S. 60 shield displayed on the guide sign is the first indication of the nearby eastern terminus of the nearly transcontinental route. The highway begins at the Rudee Inlet Bridge of General Booth Boulevard. Virginia 149 ends just before the intersection pictured, 1.92 miles north of Virginia 165 (North Landing Road). The State Secondary designations of 516 and 6229 relate to what was used when Virginia Beach was known as Princess Anne County. These are no longer considered official according to VDOT logs.1 Photo taken 04/13/01.
General Booth Boulevard northbound approaching Birdneck Road. Displayed here is a set of Interstate 64 & 264 trailblazers for Birdneck Road. The north-south surface boulevard interchanges with the Virginia Beach-Norfolk Expressway at Exit 22. The Interstate 64 shield is a Virginia standard non-cutout with Clearview font. Several of these types of shields can be found in the city of Virginia Beach. One such example occurs on Virginia 165 southbound at Virginia 149. Situated nearby to General Booth Boulevard to the intersection is the Virginia Marine Science Museum and the U.S. Navy Amphibious Base. Photo taken 04/13/01.
