Growth coming near 78
 • $2 million OK'd for W. Boundary

Site development is underway on the south side of Holly Springs near U.S. 78 for a new Wendy’s and AutoZone.

Wendy’s restaurant will be located just south of Sonic, according to Don Hollingsworth with the Holly Springs Utility Department. A new AutoZone store will be built nearby on land adjacent to the westbound ramp to Highway 78, he said.

Hollingsworth said access to the new businesses will be possible when an intersection is completed directly opposite McDonald’s on Craft Street.

West Boundary Extension will connect with West Boundary at Chulahoma Avenue and allow for traffic flow west of town into a new development area known as Holly Springs Commons. The extension will tie in to Craft Street at the new intersection near Wendy’s.

Expected to open soon a short distance north on Craft Street is a new KFC.

Holly Springs Mayor Andre’ DeBerry said on Tuesday that the Mississippi Development Authority approved $2 million for the construction of West Boundary Extension Friday. He also said the city is working with other state agencies to garner another $1,050,000 needed to complete the extension.

Commercial development, medical and health care-related projects and residential development is expected to take place in the Commons, DeBerry said.

“We are looking to do some economic impact projects in the Commons area,” he said.
