Bond-Funded (Green) Projects
100% Town Funding Through Bonds
Purpose: Town-driven, bond-funded and quick-turnaround projects requiring no additional funding sources. Funding will be used to improve pedestrian and motorist travel throughout Holly Springs with an emphasis on what will benefit residents most and what can be done within an immediate time frame.
Work on these projects began immediately after the bond referendum. These projects will be of most direct benefit for local residents travelling local routes. Because a funding partner is not likely for these projects, the Town isn’t waiting for that opportunity. Funding for these projects is entirely from the Town.
Holly Springs Road Widening (Flint Point-Sunset)
Widening Holly Springs Road from Flint Point Lane to Sunset Lake Road to a four-lane road with bike lanes and sidewalks. This project will increase road capacity ahead of the 540 interchange planned on Holly Springs Road. Also, upgrading bridge over Middle Creek will improve public safety as the current bridge area floods during heavy rain events.Link to page

Avent Ferry Road Realignment
