North Cherokee Road between Holly Street and Oak Street will be closed on Monday, February 27, starting at 8:00 am so that trees in front of the Blue Willow Inn can be removed. Roads should be open again by 4:00 pm.
The following map shows where the road blocks will be located (orange) and routes that should be taken to get around the road closures.
Cars can take East Hightower Trail or Holly Street to Dogwood Ave and return via Oak Drive.
Trucks will be redirected down Ronthor Rd to Fairplay Dr to the Bypass. Trucks with deliveries in town will need to go to the south end of Cherokee to reach downtown.
A tree expert has looked at the trees and considers them to be in poor health and are a hazard.
