Taylorville has wrapped up a number of re-paving projects around town, however one project that didn’t quite get done before winter struck was the Cherokee street project. The project required more work, which has since been put on hold due to weather limitations with laying asphalt.
Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry explained how the asphalt companies have shut down for the winter, which has delayed paving the street.
One reason the project took the time it did is because the city elected to do the project themselves. This saved the city a large amount of money, however did mean the project had a longer timeline than it would have otherwise.
