TxDOT is conducting a study to examine the feasibility of extending FM 2271 in Bell County. Extending FM 2271 could increase connectivity in the area by offering additional travel options to residents and visitors. Recommendations resulting from this feasibility study will need to go through the Killeen-Temple Metropolitan Planning Organization prioritization process, as well as TxDOT’s project development process prior to any construction. All comments must be received on or before Friday, May 21, 2021, at 11:59 p.m.


As population and traffic volumes continue to increase, FM 2271 between FM 2305 and FM 439 has experienced a growing mobility issue. The potential improvements could improve access and allow for better connectivity along the corridor.

Special Accommodations:

The FM 2271 Extension Regional Feasibility Study virtual public meeting will be conducted in English.
