Construction continues along U.S. Highway 190, Wednesday, April 30, 2014 in Killeen.

The Texas Department of Transportation announced that portions of U.S. Highway 190 in Killeen would be closed at night on Wednesday and Thursday for construction.

The closures will take place from at the following locations:

On Wednesday, the eastbound 190 will be closed from State Highway 195 (Fort Hood Street) to WS Young Boulevard from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m.

Traffic will detour to the Central Texas Expressway at the 195 exit, and re-enter at WS 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, and drivers should expect congestion and temporary delays.
