Every year, the Town of Holly Springs identifies streets to be resurfaced as part of an ongoing effort to keep roadways in good shape as the Town grows. In this week’s council meeting, staff identified roughly 2.7 miles of asphalt along 19 streets in Holly Springs to be resurfaced starting this summer. The project will take about 70 days to complete.
“About every five years, a street rating survey is performed on the entire town-maintained road network,” said Michael Leonas, Town of Holly Springs Senior Engineer. “This information is then combined with other factors like traffic volume, safety and interconnectivity to create a ranking priority for roads that are selected for repair.”
Streets being resurfaced with a new asphalt top layer include:
- Avent Acres: Cottonwood Lane, Holly Berry Lane, West Elm Street from Ash Court to Cottonwood Lane, Avent Circle
- Braxton Village: Talley Ridge Drive and Harvolly Drive
- Holly Glen: Evergreen View Drive from Holly Meadow Drive to Sycamore Ridge Lane, Sycamore Ridge Lane, Shady Porch Court, Hickory Knoll Court
- Remington: Flagg Road, Buckfield Lane, Baygall Road
- Somerset Farm: Hidden Cellars Drive and Barbwire Circle
- Sunset Ridge North: Crossway Lane from Skymont Drive to Cliffcreek Drive
- Wescott: Danagher Court
- Windcrest: Olvera Way and Springstone Drive/Crossway Lane, starting 250’ east of its intersection with Main Street to Steedmont Drive
This year, in addition to resurfacing work, other selected streets around Town will receive pavement preservation treatment starting late summer. This treatment enhances the durability of the asphalt by replacing chemical components that are lost as asphalt ages in the early part of its service life. The coating, which initially appears pink when it is applied, dries into a translucent coating.
Streets receiving preservation treatment include all streets in The Mills at Avent Ferry and Wildwood subdivisions, as well as some of the streets in the Trinity Creek and Woodcreek subdivisions.
Nearby residents will be notified by the contractor in advance. Be aware of workers, equipment and trucks in the street and please drive slowly and carefully. For questions or concerns, please contact Holly Springs Utilities & Infrastructure at (919) 577-3150.
“Our streets are a very valuable asset, with an estimated value of $86 million,” Leonas said. “Our roadways are constantly used, and it’s an important and ongoing job to keep them in good condition for years to come.”
