Traffic may be heavy in Killeen this week because according to KWTX parts of I-14 will be closed for construction.

The westbound lanes of I-14 at Clear Creek Road will be temporarily closed from 7 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The eastbound lanes will be closed from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday.

On Thursday the eastbound exit ramp to N. Clear Creek will also temporarily close from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday.

This week is as good as any to find new routes in Killeen to avoid traffic.
