HDR Engineering: US 190 Copperas Cove Reliever

As the major thoroughfare to and from Fort Hood, U.S. Highway 190 long suffered major congestion through the central business district of Copperas Cove, Texas. Today, thousands of travelers to and from the world’s largest U.S. Army base use the faster, safer $46.5 million, six-mile-long reliever route. The HDR team navigated in and around rugged limestone terrain, endangered- species habitats, and government-owned land—as well as a closed landfill in the project’s right-of way that required removal, relocation and re-closure. Creative design and construction turned the unique concept into a reality, made possible by groundbreaking efficiency in environmental documentation and an innovative funding strategy.
