Beginning Tuesday, September 22, Onion Road in Killeen will be closed for approximately three months to facilitate the construction of a drainage culvert as part of Phase 2 of the Stagecoach Road Reconstruction Project.

Residents of Grove Drive, Loop Road, and Meadow Lane will need to access their properties via Stagecoach Road, and Residents of Tater Lane, Love Road, and Hope Road will need to use Stan Schlueter Loop.

A portion of Stagecoach Road from Bowfield Drive to W.S. Young Drive will remain closed through March. All westbound traffic must detour using Bowfield Drive to Shawlands Road, Featherline Road, and Chaparral Road. Eastbound traffic should use Stan Schlueter Loop or Chaparral Road to bypass the closure. Llewelyn Drive should be avoided.

The Stagecoach Road Reconstruction Project is meant to widen Stagecoach Rd. to five lanes and a continuous center turn lane from the Harker Heights city limit to State Highway 195. The project is expected to be completed in late 2016.
