Davis Road, between Holly Springs Road and Sandy Plains Road, will be closed April 3 – July 3, for roadway improvements necessary due to relocation of Mountain View ES. We apologize for the impact to bus routes during the end of this school year. However, fortunately, the detour route is a short one – Holly Springs Road to Sandy Plains Road.
