Each year, streets are identified to be slurry sealed, a process that extends the life of streets and provides a smoother riding surface. Slurry sealing involves the entire street surface, curb to curb, so cars in affected areas must not park in the roadway. Vehicles may use the roadway once the barriers are removed. 

Roads will be open to residents, but closed to through traffic during this work. The contractor will have traffic detoured around the work sites. Motorists should anticipate delays and are asked to use caution and obey traffic control devices.
If you wish to make inquiries, please contact the City of Killeen Transportation office at (254) 616-3153 or email The City of Killeen apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of this work and appreciates your cooperation.
