The Killeen City Council will meet today to discuss road projects covered in a possible bond referendum in May.

The city of Killeen has proposed placing the bond on the ballot as a companion to the Killeen school district’s potential $426 million bond referendum in May.

The city has said the bond would help pay for, at minimum, four road projects surrounding the school district’s planned facilities. Those projects, with current construction estimates, include:

• Expansion of Chaparral Road from two to five lanes — $21.5 million.

• Expansion of East Trimmier Road south of Stagecoach Road from two to five lanes — $7 million.

• Expansion of West Trimmier Road between Stagecoach and Chaparral roads from two to five lanes — $7.9 million.

• Expansion of Featherline Road between Stagecoach and Chaparral roads from two to five lanes — $9 million.

The total cost for all four projects — the baseline principal amount for a proposed bond — is $45.6 million.

The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at the Utilities Collection Building, 210 W. Avenue C.
