Street Closure: North Cherokee Street Starting August 2nd

Beginning Wednesday, August 2nd, it is expected that a section of N. Cherokee Street at the new Jonesborough K-8 School and the intersection with Skyline Drive will be closed to through traffic. The closure is necessary for the construction of the new traffic circle in association with the school project, and that section of N. Cherokee will remain closed until the traffic circle is operational. Traffic to and from Tavern Hill Rd will be routed onto Skyline Dr which will remain open. Residents along N. Cherokee Street in this area can continue to use N. Cherokee coming from US-11E. The closure is expected to be in effect for 3-4 weeks depending on the weather.
