You may want to plan on using an alternate route if you regularly use Cherokee Street in Taylorville on your commute. Road work has started on Cherokee between East Main Cross and Ash Street. The Taylorville Street and Sewer Department is installing new sewer and water lines, along with widening the street.
Taylorville Street and Sewer Department Superintendent Dick Wiseman says some of the work being done next week will lead to partial closures of Cherokee Street.
Wiseman says the project has been a long time coming.
Wiseman says the project should be completed sometime in the fall.
