HOLLEY – The big state grant announced today for the Village of Holley will help the community replace old water infrastructure on Route 237 and the northeast quadrant of the village, Mayor Brian Sorotchy said.

Holley is planning a $2,090,000 project and the state will pay for $1,254,000 of the upgrade with a grant.

The work will follow the same area of improvements for new sidewalks. The governor in April announced a $1,780,000 state grant for Holley to construct curbs and sidewalks that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

“These two projects combined will result in new sidewalks and water main for about a third of the Village, installed over the next few years,” Sorotchy said today in an email. “We are very excited to have our project selected and thank everyone involved in putting the application together as well as all of the support we have received from our local, county, and state representatives!”

When the projects are done, the state Department of Transportation also plans to mill and repave routes 237 and 31 in the village.
