A $7.8 million contract for trail and road extensions with a Belton-based construction firm will be on the Killeen City Council’s voting docket at 5 p.m. today.

Three council members raised questions about the firm at the Feb. 20 meeting and another said the city should provide further information about James Construction Group before awarding the contract to construct segments three and four of the Heritage Oaks Hike and Bike Trail.

The project would also include the construction of 0.6 miles of road to connect Rosewood Drive to Chaparral Road. The extension includes the construction of a 284-foot-long bridge over Trimmier Creek, south of the White Rock Estates subdivision.

In other business, the council will vote on a zoning change and future land use map adjustment for about a 20-acre plot of land east of the Clear Creek Mobile Home Park on Clear Creek Road.

The zoning change would clear the way for the construction of roughly 60 duplexes on the narrow rectangular plot.

The council’s meeting will begin at 5 p.m. today at council chambers at City Hall, 101 N. College St.
