Killeen breaks ground on Highway 190 Overpass Project

Posted:
KILLEEN -

The City of Killeen broke ground late Friday morning to mark the start of construction on the US Highway 190 Overpass Project. The event was held at Central Texas Expressway at Stonetree Drive.

The project will raise US 190 over its intersection with Rosewood Drive. The project will also widen the US 190 roadway to six lanes from Stan Schlueter Loop to FM 2410. Rosewood Drive will extend south to Fawn Drive, and FM 2410 will be widened to five lanes from Stan Schlueter Loop to Roy Reynolds Drive. 

A new hike and bike trail from Central Texas Expressway to Fawn Drive is also included in the project.  

"This project is vital to north-south mobility in Killeen," says City Manager Glenn Morrison. "Not only will it help relieve congestion on Stan Schlueter Loop and other roads in this part of town, it will serve as a catalyst for both commercial and residential growth along the corridor."

The $32 million project was selected for funding in October 2009 as part of TxDOT's Pass-Through Financing Program. The city says the program helps accelerate improvements in mobility and safety on state highways by allowing local communities to fund upfront costs for construction projects.

The project is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2015.
