Project Overview

Construction on the East Holly project is complete, and finishing touches will occur in the spring of 2020. The project begins at the intersection of 9th Avenue and County Road 351 and ends at the Central Avenue intersection.

This project will greatly improve traffic flow by rehabilitating East Holly to accommodate a two-way left turn lane, and realigning the County Road 351 and 9th Avenue NE intersection. The project also has new drainage features, curbing, and sidewalk. The East Holly Street project will provide for a safer section of roadway for road and pedestrian users through an ADA compliant sidewalk on the south side of East Holly.

The purpose of the project is to improve safety, access, and mobility along East Holly Street. Two-lane two-way traffic will be maintained as much as possible, but one-lane two-way flagger guided traffic may be required for some construction activities to ensure work zone safety and mobility.

Project Status

Update December 20, 2019:

The final touches on the East Holly project will resume next spring. Several spots of the road surface will be smoothed, and topsoil work will be evaluated after the thaw in the spring.
