Tank Destroyer Blvd on Fort Hood to Copperas Cove closed

FORT HOOD, Texas – Tank Destroyer Boulevard is closed from Clarke Road on Fort Hood to Main Street in Copperas Cove because heavy rain damaged the structural integrity of The Turkey Creek Low Water Crossing, Jan. 25.

Fort Hood Directorate of Public Works Traffic Engineering and Directorate of Emergency Services estimate that it will be closed for 5-6 months. The gate on that route, west of Clarke Road, will also be closed until the road re-opens.

Officials had already planned to close the road in February because the crossing was deteriorating. The overnight rain, expedited the construction plan because the road was deemed no longer safe for travel.
