At its July 7 meeting, the Holly Springs Town Council approved moving forward with design work to extend Rogers St. across Main St. to Avent Ferry Rd. downtown. Staff said the project would encourage downtown development, improve traffic flow and provide a waterline connection.
The 280-foot one-way road extension would allow traffic to flow east to west, from Main St. onto Avent Ferry. The project would include on-street parking, decorative sidewalks, and street and pedestrian lighting. The design is to be completed by Town Engineering staff.
The council also approved entering a supplemental municipal agreement with NC Department of Transportation for additional funding toward the project to widen Avent Ferry Rd. from Piney-Grove Wilbon Rd. to N.C. 55.
The council selected a few possible Town flag designs that incorporate the Town’s new logo. The flag designs will be presented to the public for final selection via an online survey.
The council also approved a master sign plan for the Stonemont subdivision. Entrance columns of varying heights will be built.
The council approved a contract and funding for an update to the 2012 Potable Water Hydraulic Model, which allows staff to manage current water line conditions and anticipate effects of future projects on the system. The council also granted a streetlight easement to Duke Energy Progress as part of the law enforcement center project.
