Interstate 190 Expansion Could Affect Local Businesses and Homeowners

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 11-Oct-2011

The Texas Department of Transportation announced the expansion of U.S. highway 190 last week, a 58 million project which will begin by the summer of 2012.

The expansion will include areas from the main gate of Fort Hood to W.S. Young Drive, according to the announcement that took place at the meeting of the Texas Transportation Commission in Austin.

But while the new project was funded by voters with the passing of Proposition 12 in 2007, the areas Highway 190 expansion will include may affect local businesses and homes in Killeen.

After a highway expansion plan is designed and reviewed, property necessary must be purchased in order to set the plans in motion. Negotiating with land and property owners is one vital step that must take place in order for 190 expansions to occur.

The Texas and Federal Constitutions promise property and land owners just and fair compensation for property that is needed for public use. While law requires just compensation and requires use of land purchased by the government under eminent domain to focus on public uses only, the definitions of such terms can be broad and confusing.
