Cherokee Road Sidewalks

The purpose of this project is to install sidewalks along Cherokee Road between Lexington Road and Beaverdam Road. The proposed sidewalk will close an existing gap, providing pedestrian access to Satterfield Park and adjacent subdivisions. 

Connections to the subdivisions will be made by adding mid-block crosswalks with flashing beacon signage. The project will also include crosswalks and a traffic signal modification at the intersection of Cherokee Road and Beaverdam Road.

Starting on August 12th, a storyboard showing alternative proposed designs will be available for viewing from this website along with a survey for comments from the public.

Starting on August 20th, a link will available from this website to watch a recorded virtual public meeting that will provide a more detailed explanation of the proposed designs.

Comments/surveys will be accepted until August 26th and then submitted for review by the Mayor and Commission.
