KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) The City of Killeen is urging the public not to use the Heritage Oaks Hike & Bike Trail while construction is underway on the pathway.

City spokeswoman Hilary Shine says the active construction site is “unsafe for use.”

“The public is advised to refrain from using the trail until construction is complete this summer,” Shine said.

“The active construction area is unfinished and has heavy equipment in use making it dangerous to the public. Pavement, lighting and safety features must be completed. The entirety of the trail is closed and may not be used.”

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 upon completion.

The trail will connect to Purser Family Park in Harker heights and will include a paved path with benches and lighting.
