Batesville Road closure

Cherokee Sheriff's Office reported a gas main break on Batesville Road.

A portion of Batesville Road has been closed because of a natural gas pipe break, Cherokee County Sheriff's office reported Wednesday afternoon. The road is closed just west of Sugar Pike Road.

Utilities have estimated it will take "several" hours to repair, the sheriff's office said on social media. Drivers are urged to avoid the area.
