KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Killeen officials are asking residents to refrain from using the Heritage Oaks Hike & Bike Trail until construction is finished this summer.

“The active construction area is unfinished and has heavy equipment in use making it dangerous to the public,” the city said in a press release.

“Pavement, lighting and safety features must be completed. The entirety of the trail is closed and may not be used.”

Once the work is finished, the trail will run about 3.5 miles along the southern end of Rosewood Drive and will follow Pyrite Drive and Trimmier Creek, featuring a paved path with benches and lighting.

The finished trail will connect to Purser Family Park in Harker Heights.
