6-22-20 Veterans Memorial Boulevard Signal Removal Process Begins

Permanent stop sign to be placed for 20th Street traffic.

The traffic signal at the intersection of Veterans Memorial Boulevard and 20th Street is scheduled for removal. A 30-day transition period begins today.

The intersection has been functioning with temporary stop signs in all directions since the signal became inoperable due to damage last fall.

The City conducted a traffic signal warrant study to determine the most appropriate intersection controls. Based on Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices methodology, the intersection does not meet current criteria to require a traffic signal. The appropriate control is continuous flow traffic on Veterans Memorial Boulevard and a stop sign installed on 20th Street.

During the transition to the single stop sign configuration, current all direction stop signs will remain in place. Digital signs have been placed to indicate the planned changes with an effective date of July 22. The monthlong notification period serves to prepare motorists and pedestrians for the upcoming change to the intersection.

The City of Killeen apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of this work and appreciates your cooperation as we improve traffic mobility.
