Street projects in Taylorville are wrapping up for the winter with the Taylorville Street Department finishing up some final projects before the colder weather hits.
Taylorville Street and Sewer Department Superintendent Dick Wiseman says one project that will not be finished in time for winter is the Cherokee Street repaving project. Wiseman says Cherokee was reopened Tuesday afternoon, but motorists can expected periodic closures of the street throughout the winter as they prepare for paving the street next spring.
The street department has finished many other repaving projects across the city, and they are expecting to complete the replacement of a broken manhole cover on Walnut Street this week. That project has temporarily closed Walnut Street next to the Taylorville Fire Department.
Wiseman says besides the Cherokee and Walnut Street projects, all that is left for this year’s projects is to finish paying the bills for the work done.
