A road crew will close the eastbound Exit 280-B from Interstate-14 to Clear Creek Road in Killeen beginning Wednesday evening for construction of a permanent concrete traffic barrier wall for the exit ramp, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

Eastbound traffic access for northbound Clear Creek Road will use Exit 280 for approximately four weeks during the barrier wall construction, TxDOT said in a news release.

“This construction is part of a project to reconfigure the I-14 frontage roads at Clear Creek Rd, that began in August 2018. That project is constructing a westbound to eastbound turnaround bridge and includes building bridges to span the mainlanes of I-14 and the eastbound exit ramp to Clear Creek Rd. It is scheduled for completion in late November 2019, weather permitting,” according to the release.

TxDOT urges motorists to reduce their speed when approaching the work zone, seek an alternate route when possible, be cautious and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the area.
