Public Involvement Period Regarding MTP/TIP Amendments

December 19, 2015 @ 8:00 am - January 2, 2016 @ 11:55 pm

KTMPO are seeking amendments to the FY2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) and the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).

Amendment 1 Summary:

Proposition 1 is a November 2014 statewide ballot proposition and is a constitutional amendment authorized by Senate Joint Resolution 1. The amendment authorized annual disbursements from the state’s oil and gas production tax collections to the State Highway Fund. KTMPO anticipates receiving $5,500,000 for FY17.

This project, W40-03 ,will widen US 190, from one mile west of FM 2410 to Knights Way, from a four lane roadway to a six lane roadway.

Amendment 2 Summary:

KTMPO became eligible to receive Surface Transportation Program–Metropolitan Mobility (STPMM)/Category 7 funds due to its designation as a Transportation Management Area (TMA). KTMPO received 7 proposals, 6 roadway projects and 1 transit project, for FY15 and FY16 funding. KTMPO has a combined total of $8,465,055 in Category 7 funds. Transit projects receive ten percent, or $845,606, leaving $7,610,450 for other projects. When subtracting out the 20% match, this figure is reduced to $6,088,360.

The seven projects are listed below:

  • A40-03-HCTD-Purchase of Fixed Route Service (FRS) buses and/or Special Transit Service buses
  • B40-03-Belton- Phase 1 of Main Street Sidewalk expansion project will include the repair and installation of sidewalks from Avenue C to Avenue J.
  • C40-02a-Copperas Cove- Construct multi-terraced pedestrian walkway to include ramps, railings and crosswalk along Avenue D from South Main St. to South 2nd St.
  • H40-02- Harker Heights- Construct traffic circle at intersection of Commercial Dr. and Heights Dr.
  • K30-02- Killeen- Rosewood Dr. Extension- Construction of a four lane roadway with center median and off-system bridge from Riverstone Dr. to Chaparral Rd.
  • N40-01- Nolanville- Construct ADA bicycle/pedestrian pathways along Main Street from Aveune I to US 190 Frontage Rd.
  • T35-24-Temple- Construction of a four lane roadway, aligning FM 2483 to Prairie View Rd. with signalized intersection.

At December 2nd Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) meeting, the six roadway projects were scored and given a rank. The highest rank project was Belton’s Main Street Expansion and Repair Project, while Harker Heights’s Commercial Drive Roundabout project was the lowest ranked. When fourth highest ranked project, Killeen, found out they would be partially funded, they announced their wish to withdraw their project. After discussion, it was decided to move Killeen project from the rank of four to the rank of six. In doing so, the five other projects will be completely funded and remaining Category 7 funds be awarded to the City of Killeen.

The Technical Advisory Committee also voted to approve funding for the purchase of FRS buses and/or Special Transit Service buses.

Public Comment Period runs from December 19th through January 2.

Public Hearings will be held at the following times:

  • December 22nd-Harker Heights Activity Center at 12:00 p.m.
  • December 22nd- CTCOG, Belton at 5:00 p.m.
