TxDOT to begin road widening on HWY 190 East of Temple

The roadwork limits span from two miles south of FM 436 in Heidenheimer, TX to the Milam County Line.

Additionally, crews will be constructing a bypass that will branch off east around Rogers, TX, and then reconnect with Highway 190.

Your title should read "east of Temple" instead of "west of Temple".

Glad to see this project get started.  Probably half the time I pass through there I get stuck behind someone going well below the speed limit.

Disappointing that it will take 3.5 years to build 7 miles through rural farmland.  Interesting that the Rogers bypass will be on the east side, requiring 2 new grade separations over/under the railroad line.  If they would extend the project one more mile, into Milam County, they'd only need one of those and have a shorter route.  More importantly, through traffic could then avoid the narrow and speed restricted S-curve underpass of the railroad near the Milam/Bell County line.  Not fun meeting a big rig under that rail bridge that is having trouble staying lane centered because he hit the curve too fast.

Is this project related to building I-14 through this area?

If it's not clearly stated in the plans the upgrade would still be along the proposed I-14 route.

What's not so clear is how I-14 gets from Belton to Heidenheimer. Some kind of new terrain route parallel to FM-93 looks necessary. That might be cheaper to do than building a directional stack interchange in Temple at I-35 & US-190 (currently a volleyball interchange completely encroached by development).

The last info on this is a southern route from south of Belton over to Heidenheimer.  It will be YEARS before that is started.
