Cherokee Road Sidewalks

Cherokee Road Sidewalk Project Public Forum
Mon., Oct. 14
6:00-8:00 p.m. (drop-in)
Athens-Ben Epps Airport
1010 Ben Epps Drive

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.

Three alternative designs will be presented at this meeting by the engineering consultants. The purpose of the public meeting is to solicit input and answer any questions. A comment form will be available at the meeting and online after the meeting at

Input will inform staff’s recommendation to the Mayor and Commission on which design will be chosen for development. The Mayor and Commission will have access to all of comments before they make a final decision.

Input collected at the meeting and online will be reviewed by staff and presented to the Mayor and Commission before the end of 2019. Once a concept is approved by the Mayor and Commission, ACCGov will solicit bids for construction. The anticipated start date is fall 2020.
