Wall Price-Keller reconstruction delayed by record rainfall
Drivers who use Wall Price-Keller Road to connect travel between Hwy. 377/Main Street and Whitley Road will encounter a longer closure than originally planned after record-setting rain in September and October.
Although originally anticipated to reopen in early November, we now expect the full closure between Hwy. 377 and Whitley Road to last until the week of December 17, weather permitting.
Work to reconstruct the roadway, expand turning capacity and improve the intersections at each end, and replace an adjacent water line started back on Thursday, Aug. 9. In its final configuration, eastbound drivers will have dedicated turn lanes both north and south onto Whitley and westbound drivers will choose between a dedicated left-turn lane to head southbound on Hwy. 377 or a straight/right lane option. Plans also call for widening the pavement at the Hwy. 377 intersection to improve turning radii for vehicles.
