The Killeen City Council will consider a change order today that will slice nearly $90,000 from the cost of the Trimmier Road Widening Project.

The project’s 18th change order will reconcile the city’s books on “overruns and underruns” on the locally funded portions of the Trimmier project.

This change order is a net credit of $89,716.96 to the city, lowering the total cost of the contract to $7,715,855.29.

A future change order will follow the same process for the federally funded portion of this project, according to a council memorandum.

The council also will consider accepting the dedication of 24 tracts of land along Rancier Avenue and Westcliff Road previously owned by the Texas Department of Transportation.

While the city has maintained the roads for an undefined amount of time, the right-of-way dedication would formally put the tracts under city ownership for future maintenance.

“This is an administrative action to clean up long standing ROW issues,” a council memorandum said.

The council’s workshop will begin at 5 p.m. today in City Hall, 101 N. College St. | 254-501-7567
