The Texas Department of Transportation moved traffic to a temporary roadway for westbound U.S. Highway 190 traffic coming into Copperas Cove to make way for State Highway 9 and U.S. 190 bypass construction.

Travelers began using three new lanes Wednesday along a small section of roadway just east of Copperas Cove. On Tuesday night, the contractor for the State Highway 9 project closed several lanes to make the switch to the new lanes.

TxDOT spokesperson Ken Roberts said there may be future lane closures for westbound traffic to create a barrier between the construction and the drivers, and another switch to a new roadway is projected by Thanksgiving for eastbound traffic leaving Copperas Cove.
