Lanes to be closed at main gate


Construction will impact outbound Fort Hood traffic beginning Wednesday.

The Texas Department of Transportation will temporarily reduce southbound traffic on Fort Hood’s TJ Mills Boulevard to two lanes through mid-July from the post’s main gate to U.S. Highway 190, according to a release from post officials.

An additional merge lane will be temporarily dedicated to outbound Santa Fe Avenue to ensure a safe and efficient flow of traffic is maintained from the installation. Posted speed limits will also be reduced to 25 mph within the transition area.
