As part of Copperas Cove’s downtown revitalization project, the eastbound lane of traffic on Avenue D, between 1st Street and Main Street, will be temporarily closed to traffic on Wednesday and Thursday.

A detour will be established around the construction site, as follows:

Motorists traveling east on Avenue D must either turn north or south onto 1st Street

Motorists traveling north or south on 1st Street will not be permitted to turn east onto Avenue D

Cove city officials encourage the public, to include both pedestrians and motorists, to use caution while traveling in and around the designated construction site.

The City Manager came under a bit of fire for this. Add in the Fathom water mess and everyone can understand why she has resigned.


Copperas Cove has got to be the first city in the history of the planet to attempt to improve traffic flow by making their streets narrower and harder to negotiate. They made such a mess between First St and Third St I guess they now want to continue the travesty all the way to Main St. Once they reach that point they'll feel compelled to continue at least to Second St. just to waste more of the taxpayers money.
Its one thing to try to make improvements but when all your traffic congestion and construction create no improvements it's time to come up with a different plan.
