ELLENWOOD — District V Commissioner Bruce Holmes along with Henry County leadership celebrated the West Village Road project with a small groundbreaking ceremony Friday.

Holmes said that the West Village Road widening project is a very important expansion and that it is the last piece of the puzzle to building out the infrastructure for the Town Center.

“As everybody knows, we’ve been developing this area for a while,” Holmes said. “Building this road out to look similar to Fairview Urgent Care with the 8-foot multi-use paths, beautification and street lighting, is going to add a lot of character to this community, and I am so excited that this day has finally come.”

The West Village Road widening project is made possible through the shared SPLOST IV and SPLOST V initiative. The contractor for this project is C.W. Matthews and the total project cost is $6,472,287.
