Public Input on Cherokee Road Sidewalk Project through Aug. 26
The Athens-Clarke County Transportation and Public Works Department is seeking public input on sidewalk and multi-use path options on Cherokee Road between Lexington Road and Beaverdam Road through Wednesday, August 26.
A public comment survey is available online and includes a story map and highlights project alternatives, multi-use alternatives, and cost comparisons of different plans. The survey and details are available at accgov.com/cherokee.
The proposed sidewalk will provide pedestrian access to Satterfield Park and adjacent subdivisions. Adding mid-block crosswalks with flashing beacon signage is also being considered as part of the project. The project proposes crosswalk and traffic signal modification to the intersection of Beaverdam Road and Buddy Christian Way.
The Cherokee Road project is a Tier 1 Pedestrian Project identified in the Athens in Motion Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan, which is available at www.accgov.com/athensinmotion. Several sidewalk and multi-use path alternatives are being studied as part of the project.
A video explaining the Cherokee Road sidewalk project and the multi-use path options is available at the project website at accgov.com/cherokee or on YouTube (youtube.com/accgov or by searching for 'accgov' on the app on mobile or TV devices). A video of the Mayor and Commission Work Session on July 9 that featured discussion of the project is also currently available on the project webpage or the YouTube page.
