The Killeen-Temple Metropolitan Planning Organization (KTMPO) is responsible for establishing a comprehensive transportation planning process for the greater area around Killeen and Temple. The MPO is comprised of a Policy Board and Technical Committee whose members are community and county elected officials and/or are appointed by those officials. By federal and state law, an MPO must be in operation in every urbanized area with a population over 50,000 people.
The KTMPO boundary encompasses the following cities: Bartlett, Belton, Copperas Cove, Harker Heights, Holland, Kempner, Killeen, Little River/Academy, Morgan's Point Resort, Nolanville, Rogers, Salado, Temple, and Troy. We cover all of Bell County and parts of Lampasas and Coryell Counties along with portions of Fort Hood. KTMPO was previously known as the Killeen-Temple Urban Transportation Study, or K-TUTS. The Board voted in November 2009 to change the name as part of several amendments to the By-Laws.
IH 35 GROUNDBREAKING IN TEMPLE
Major construction of IH 35 in Temple, from Midway Drive to North Loop 363, is set to begin in the coming weeks. The improvements include widening the mainlaines to 4 lanes in each direction, rebuilding bridges, and moving the joining point of SH 53 and FM 2305 further west for easier and safer navigation of the IH 35/Adams-Central intersection. The ramps will be replaced and reorganized, and will be longer and fewer in number.
