The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office is announcing that due to concerns from citizens, parents and school officials our Traffic Enforcement Unit will be out on Knox Bridge Highway at its intersection with River Bend Way which leads to Knox Elementary starting tomorrow. Units will primarily be at that location during drop-off and pick-up times of students which are 7:15-7:45am and 2:15-2:40pm in order to reduce reckless driving and speeding on Knox Bridge Hwy. as students are exiting and entering the school zone. This coverage will continue when possible until the end of the school year.
This is an extremely busy intersection and there has been many inquiries about the installation of a traffic control device at the location. Sheriff Reynolds will be contacting local officials to discuss the matter.
