3-27-20 Public Use of Heritage Oaks Trail Prohibited

The City of Killeen has entered a new phase of construction on its Heritage Oaks Hike & Bike Trail project in southeast Killeen. The public is prohibited from using the trail until construction is complete and the trail is officially opened this summer.

While we are nearing project completion, the area is still an active construction site. The new phase is quality control, which will bring additional worker activity, including heavy equipment, along the entirety of the trail. Increased construction activity poses a significant threat to the safety of adults and children and makes the trail unsafe for any public use during this time.

When complete this summer, the Heritage Oaks Hike & Bike Trail will run about 3.5 miles along the southern end of Rosewood Drive and follow Pyrite Drive and Trimmier Creek. It will feature a paved path with benches, lighting and other amenities. The regional trail will also connect to Purser Family Park in Harker Heights.

The project includes the extension of Rosewood Drive south to Chaparral Road. Motorists, bicyclers and pedestrians can all look forward to new connections when work is complete this summer.
