Cherokee Nation Dedicates New $2.8 Million Road

The Cherokee Nation and Adair and Sequoyah County commissioners dedicated a $2.8 million road improvement project on July 22. The project repaired a bridge and repaved 4.2 miles of roadway stretching from southern Adair County to northern Sequoyah County.

The Cherokee Nation used $2.8 million from Tribal Transportation Program funds. The Nicut road and bridge improvement project will provide safer travel for citizens in the Rock Fence to Belfonte communities.

“The Cherokee Nation makes investments in important infrastructure like this because it improves the lives of all citizens residing and traveling in our jurisdiction,” Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker said.

Levi Eagle, of Stilwell, drives Nicut road frequently and said the project was much needed in the community.

“This new road is a great thing, and I really thank the Cherokee Nation for their work,” he said.

In fiscal year 2013, the Cherokee Nation completed $17 million in road improvement projects. For more information on the Cherokee Nation Roads Program, visit www.cherokee.org and click under the services and community tabs.
