There are two upcoming open house opportunities for the general public to find out more about the Comprehensive Transportation Plan for Cherokee County. The Roadway/Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST Tax) or Roadway/SPLOST Program involves a Comprehensive Transportation Plan.
Every five years this plan is reassessed and key stakeholders have the opportunity to provide input and feedback regarding the plan. According to the Comprehensive Transportation Plan Update Factsheet, “With the help of the public throughout the planning process, the CTP update will reflect the County’s current transportation needs while addressing future growth opportunities.”
Transportation is an important factor when it comes to the growth and organization of Cherokee County. There are many factors to consider when looking at the transportation needs of those that work in, live in, and visit Cherokee County.
The Cherokee County Comprehensive Transportation Plan Factsheet lists the following Roadway System Facts:
- 1,200 miles of County maintained roadway (unincorporated)
- 32 County maintained bridges
- 38 County maintained bridge-culverts
- 23,000 County maintained drainage structures
- 256 miles of County maintained storm drainage pipes
- 270 miles of County maintained roadside ditches
- 54 County maintained traffic signals
