Cherokee Road Sidewalks

Watch the July 9, 2020 Mayor & Commission Work Session discussion of the Cherokee Road project.

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.

From the following link you can view sidewalk alternatives, multi-use alternatives, and cost comparisons for the different plans provided by the project consultants. From this link, you can select the "Your Feedback" tab to take a brief survey. Staff will review comments and feedback and provide to the Mayor and Commission.
