Resurfacing of Cherokee Boulevard Begins Feb. 20

Posted: 02/17/2012
 On Monday, Feb. 20, the City of Knoxville will begin resurfacing Cherokee Boulevard in the Sequoyah Hills neighborhood, from Kingston Pike to Kenesaw Avenue.

The contractor, Rogers Group Inc., will perform this work one section at a time, and one side of the boulevard at a time, starting with the entrance into the neighborhood at Kingston Pike. Through traffic will be maintained for the duration. The expectation is that this work will be completed before the Dogwood Arts Festival begins in April.

Because of failures in the road, the work in some sections will require not only milling the asphalt but also removing the underlying concrete and rebuilding the sub-surface. The City of Knoxville's Engineering Department appreciates everyone's patience as it embarks upon this project.
