Killeen

Construction work at the Heritage Oaks Hike & Bike Trail is causing staff to urge the public not to use the southeast Killeen trail.

In a Monday news release, Hilary Shine, the city’s communication director said the “active construction work makes it unsafe for use.”

“The public is advised to refrain from using the trail until construction is complete this summer,” Shine said. “The active construction area is unfinished and has heavy equipment in use making it dangerous to the public. Pavement, lighting and safety features must be completed. The entirety of the trail is closed and may not be used.”

The Heritage Oaks Hike & Bike Trail is intended to run about 3.5 miles along the southern end of Rosewood Drive and follow Pyrite Drive and Trimmier Creek. It will feature a paved path with benches, lighting and other amenities. The regional trail will also connect to Purser Family Park in Harker Heights.
