The Texas Department of Transportation announced that portions of U.S. Highway 190 in Killeen will be closed nightly Wednesday and Thursday for construction.

On Wednesday, eastbound U.S. 190 will be closed from State Highway 195 (Fort Hood Street) to W.S. Young Drive from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Traffic will detour to Central Texas Expressway at the SH 195 exit, and re-enter at the W.S. Young entrance ramp.

On Thursday night, the Willow Springs bridge at U.S. 190 will be closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., with traffic diverted to the expressway during the closure.

These temporary closures will allow contractors to continue work on the U.S. 190 expansion project. Drivers should expect congestion and temporary delays.
