Keller Trail Closure at Rapp Road for Utility Work Amid New Subdivision DevelopmentSource: Google Street View

Keller residents who frequent the trail near Rapp Road and Rufe Snow Drive intersection will need to find an alternate route for the coming weeks. Starting Wednesday, June 12, that segment of the trail will be closed to allow for utility work catering to a new neighborhood development, the City of Keller has announced.

The closure is a necessary precaution to ensure the safety of both the trail users, and the crews who are working on the site of the upcoming subdivision at the southwest corner. The expected duration for the utility work is about three weeks, assuming the cooperation of the weather. During this period, trail-goers are asked to adhere to the posted signage and barricades that will mark the boundaries of the construction zone.

Local officials are counting on the public's patience and understanding, as the subdivision project marks the introduction of a new residential area that will eventually be part of the community's fabric. As stated in the City of Keller, "Please respect the signage and barricades blocking the trail at both ends of the subdivision property".

The city has not yet provided details on any detours or alternative paths for trail users but encourages residents to stay tuned for updates. With construction, and development work on the rise, such temporary inconveniences are expected as the city continues to evolve and grow. Community members are reminded to keep an eye on the city's communications for ongoing updates regarding the construction progress and trail reopening.
