Briefing on Fiscal Year 2026 Smart Scale Projects





The City of Hampton (the “City”) has identified three projects that potentially qualify for Virginia Department of Transportation ("VDOT") consideration under the Smart Scale Program. This program funds projects on a 100% Federal and State share basis.  The three projects are:


1.                     Coliseum Drive Extension Phase B - Butler Farm Road to Neil Armstrong Parkway*

2.                     North Campus Parkway Bicycle & Pedestrian Improvements - Neil Armstrong Parkway* (at North Campus Parkway) to Neil Armstrong Parkway* (at Floyd Thompson Drive)

3.                     North King Street Corridor Improvements Segment 5 - Quash Street to Old Fox Hill Road;


*Effective July 1, 2021: Magruder Boulevard will officially be renamed Neil Armstrong Parkway (approved Resolution 20-0005)




The following proposed improvement projects are consistent with long-range goals of the City:


(1) Coliseum Drive Extension is consistent with the Coliseum Central Master Plan and will provide a 4-lane divided street and a shared-use path for bicycles and pedestrians that will connect the Coliseum Central area to Hampton Roads Center North Campus;


(2) North Campus Parkway Bicycle & Pedestrian Improvements will install a shared-use path along North Campus Parkway from Neil Armstrong Parkway* to Commander Shepard Boulevard. North of Commander Shepard Boulevard missing sections of sidewalk on North Campus Parkway and Floyd Thompson Boulevard will be installed to extend the pedestrian route to the Neil Armstrong Parkway*/Floyd Thompson Boulevard intersection. A connection from the North Campus Parkway shared use path to the Matteson Trail at the Hamptons Golf Course will also be installed to provide additional connectivity; and


(3) North King Street Corridor Improvements Segment 5 is consistent with the North King Street Master Plan and will install the last segment of a continuous shared-use path between Downtown and the Langley Air Force Base gate that will improve safety and provide access to the existing bus stops along the east side of North King Street.





These projects are funded with 100% State and Federal funds.
