A road dedication scheduled Friday to honor late Holly Springs Officer Joe Burson has been postponed due to expected weather from Hurricane Ian.
“Regrettably, due to the imminent severe weather expected on this Friday from Hurricane Ian, we will be postponing the state road naming ceremony for Officer Burson," state Rep. Brad Thomas said in a statement. "I would personally like to thank both the Holly Springs Police Department and Northside Hospital for their efforts and assistance they provided to my office. We will announce a new date shortly.”
The interchange of Interstate 575 at Sixes Road will be named in memory of Burson, who was killed in June 2021 during a traffic stop.
