Copperas Cove, Texas (KWTX) The Texas Department of Transportation is closing down part of a major highway in Central Texas for repairs.
Beginning at 10pm Sunday, several major sections of I-14/US 190 will be closed south of the city, weather permitting.
Officials say they plan to re-open the highway at 7am Monday, but will close the lanes once again Monday through Friday, 7pm to 7am, until all repairs are completed.
Work crews will be replacing sections of pavement along I-14 from the 190 split to the intersection on FM 3046. The work is expected to take about a week to complete.
Eastbound and westbound I-14 traffic will detour via Business 190 through Copperas Cove during the overnight hours of the repair operations.
TxDOT is asking all drivers to slow down in work areas, and be alert along the detour route.
