Parts of Interstate 14 to Close in Killeen This Week
KWTX's Brandon Hamilton reported that if you are going to be driving in Killeen this upcoming week, expect delays on Interstate 14 due to closures from construction at Clear Creek Road.
The Texas Department of Transportation said, "The westbound lanes of I-14 at Clear Creek Road will be temporarily closed from 7 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday." The eastbound lanes will be closed from Tuesday 7 p.m. to Wednesday at 5 a.m..
A press release said, "The eastbound exit ramp to N. Clear Creek will also be temporarily closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday."
TxDot also said, "The temporary closures will allow the contractor to set deck panels for the new westbound to eastbound turnaround bridge that will span the main lanes of I-14 and the eastbound exit ramp to Clear Creek Road. The eastbound and westbound I-14 traffic will be diverted to the frontage road, while northbound and southbound Clear Creek Road traffic will be reduced to single lane traffic at the bridge."
Traffic control in the construction area will be ran by law enforcement, and Capital Excavation Co. out of Austin, Texas is in charge of the $4.5 million project. TxDot said that the project is scheduled to be completed around the summer of this year.
