The right eastbound lane of Elms Road just east of Christie Drive is closed through Friday for emergency repair, the city of Killeen said in a news release Wednesday.
"While conducting routine maintenance, crews discovered a street failure caused by a storm drain failure under the roadway. Repairs to both pipe and road are expected to be completed Friday," the release said.
Motorists should be cautious in the area, and observe workers and signage. Drivers should plan alternate routes if possible.
