The following areas are temporarily closed due to area flooding:
— MM 260.4 - Purvis Road and parking lot, Rock Island Spur
— Cardinal Road at Field Crossing, Rock Island Spur
Trail users are advised to use caution due to numerous cracks in the Katy Trail between Mokane (MM 125) and Clinton (MM 264.6) and in the Rock Island Spur between Windsor (MM 216.5) and Pleasant Hill (MM 262.9).
Trail users are advised to use caution until further notice as construction crews and equipment work on a pipeline project that will affect the area of MM 245.38 (east of Medford).
Rough areas, minor debris and downed trees can occur at any time on any section of the trail due to weather variations. Staff and equipment could be encountered on the trail as clean up or repairs are completed. All users should be alert to these possible conditions when on the trail and should never go around fenced off closures.
Area flooding also can affect the trail. For information about Missouri River levels and how they may impact the Katy Trail, visit the Potential Flood Locations page.
Taking some simple precautions can help keep ticks off your body during your next outdoor adventure!
Due to closure of the trail from Griessen Road to Boonville Street in Sedalia, trail users will need to use the road route found here to connect from Griessen Road to the Sedalia Depot.
