Water work begins on W. Boundary
By BARRY BURLESON
School’s out for Christmas, and at one of the most-traveled intersections in the city, that means digging up part of the street.
Last week workers with U.S. Construction of Arlington, Tenn., started installation of a new 12-inch water line, part of the Holly Springs Commons economic development project. They began at the intersection of West Boundary Street and West Chulahoma Avenue, part of a busy thoroughfare in the city which also leads to Marshall Academy.
“We want to get it all in (on West Boundary) during the Christmas holidays and not mess up traffic,” said Don Hollingsworth, public works director for the City of Holly Springs.
Tony Weatherly, project manager with U.S. Construction, said the goal is to finish the work along West Boundary before school starts back in January. Of course, that progress will depend largely on the weather.
In the meantime, he urged people to drive with caution in the area and take a different path if at all possible.
“That would be greatly appreciated,” he said.
Hollingsworth said the city is tying into the old line at Chulahoma and eventually running the new line all the way to Wendy’s restaurant adjacent to Highway 78 (Future Interstate 22).
“As soon as we get the water line in, the contractor will start building that road (West Boundary Extended),” Hollingsworth said.
The new portion of the road will run in front of Marshall Academy and go into the Holly Springs Commons development, which already includes a shopping center, restaurants and Williams Medical Clinic.
“This will boost everything,” Hollingsworth said.
