Walmart Supercenter


North Fort Worth is gaining a Wal-Mart near Keller, which will arrive in 2016. Keller has been booming in business and new roads so this is another great addition to this area. The proposal made in February and approved in March will add a 182,000 square-foot Wal-Mart SuperCenter as well as a four lane road.

New Road

Due to the new store, Wal-Mart is funding and constructing a four lane road for Park Vista Boulevard, starting at Ray White Road up to Keller Hicks Road. This will help traffic get through the residential areas and make it more convenient for area drivers.  Councilman Dennis Shingleton believes it will be better for the city and the road will help with safety.
