Safety enhancements scheduled as part of widening

Special to HHES

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will begin a project to modify a portion of Farm to Market 2410, in Bell County, this month.
The project, designed to increase safety along FM 2410, will widen approximately 1 ½ miles of the existing roadway from a two-lane to a four-lane facility with continuous left turn lane, from Roy Reynolds Drive in Killeen to Commercial Drive in Harker Heights. The project will also include the construction of sound barriers between Highland Oaks and Harley Drive in Harker Heights, as well as the application of safety-end-treatments to culvert-ends at cross drainage locations under the roadway and adjoining private driveways.
The work will begin with the setting of signs and barricades on January 9, 2017 and is being undertaken by TTG Utilities, LP. of Gatesville, at a cost of $6.8 Million. It is scheduled for completion in the Spring of 2019, weather permitting.
TxDOT advises residents and the traveling public to expect temporary lane closures, delays and some congestion between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. daily, within the work zone, for the duration of the project.
Please observe all warning signs and exercise caution when passing near construction personnel and equipment in the project area.
