Signage placed today to notify motorists of changes coming July 15.
The signal timing at Rosewood Drive and Central Texas Expressway is being modified. Changes will take effect July 15.
To notify motorists of the upcoming signal timing changes, message boards were placed on eastbound and westbound Central Texas Expressway near the Rosewood Drive intersection today. They will remain in those locations for one week then be moved to northbound and southbound Rosewood Drive through July 15.
The new traffic signal timing will affect traffic in all directions at the Rosewood Drive and Central Texas Expressway intersection. New signage will also be installed to clarify lane assignments. Timing changes will also be made to the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (FM 2410) and Rosewood Drive.
Motorists should anticipate traffic pattern changes, obey traffic control devices and use caution as others become accustomed to the new timing.
The City of Killeen commissioned an engineering study to improve safety in the Rosewood intersection. While the intersection met Level of Service (LOS) requirements, the report recommended improvements to improve traffic flow. The City worked with Texas Department of Transportation to implement these improvements.
The City of Killeen apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of this work and appreciates your cooperation as we improve the safety of these intersections.
