The Killeen-Temple Metropolitan Planning Organization has been working with local officials, residents, TxDOT engineers for several months. Our goal is to evaluate options for upgrading and possibly re-aligning US Highway 190 through central and eastern Bell County. Click on the image to the left for a full-size PDF of the five alignments that our working group has identified.
In the first working group session, participants brainstormed and drew a large number of potential routes – they looked at every possible combination to make a connection between FM 1670 in Belton and Rogers, where US 190 crosses out of Bell County. The next step was narrowing down the options and developing a set of criteria by which to select the most feasible routes. One route keeps US 190 on the existing alignment through Temple. Other alignments explore the challenges of constructing a new roadway some time in the future.
