This work is part of a $1.2 million investment in water infrastructure in northern Killeen to replace two miles of water mains along Veterans Memorial Boulevard from 38th Street to College Street. The rehabilitated infrastructure will increase water quality and available fire flow and reduce the number of water main breaks and service interruptions. Completion is anticipated by summer.
Traffic will be detoured around the work areas, and motorists are asked to use caution and obey signage.
The City of Killeen apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of this work, and we appreciate your cooperation as we improve this infrastructure.
