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.

Project Purpose


The purpose of the project is to improve vehicular and pedestrian mobility along the corridor. For drivers, the project will provide a consistent four-lane, median divided roadway with additional road capacity ahead of the I-540 interchange. For pedestrians and bicyclists, it will improve mobility within the corridor. 

Project Cost and Schedule


This project is primarily funded by the Town of Holly Springs transportation bond approved by voters in 2018 and could potentially receive additional funding from the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration. Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2021. Project schedule is subject to change.




Project Description


The Town of Holly Springs is proposing to improve Holly Springs Road from Flint Point Lane to Sunset Lake Road. Proposed improvements include:

  • Widening from two to four lanes with a median, curb, and gutter.
  • Widen outside lanes for shared-use with bicyclists.
  • Adding 8-foot sidewalks on both sides for a majority of the project for shared pedestrian and bicyclist use.
  • Improved pedestrian mobility through the corridor.
  • Reduced likelihood of flooding at Middle Creek crossing.
  • Improving the horizontal and vertical curvature to meet the current design standards.
  • Revised access to Holly Ridge Elementary School and Holly Ridge Middle School to improve functionality during pick-up and drop-off.


This project is planned to connect to the another Town of Holly Springs project that proposes widening along Holly Springs Road from Main Street (NC 55) to Flint Point Lane, which is anticipated to start construction at the beginning of 2021.
