Interstate Highway 14 Designation (Revised)

Correction: The previous message implied that portable buildings in excess of 16 feet in width would be routed on Interstate 14. Portable buildings exceeding 16 feet in width are not allowed on the main lanes of Interstate 14.

On Thursday, January 26, 2017, the Texas Transportation Commission designated a 25-mile segment of the state highway system as Interstate 14, concurrent with US190 from the eastern junction of US190 and East Business US190 in Copperas Cove to IH35 in Belton. (See map below.)

The designation of this segment of US190 as IH14 affects the following permit types that are not valid on the main lanes of the Interstate Highway System:

  • Ready-Mixed Concrete Truck Permits
  • Over Axle/Over Gross Weight Tolerance Permits

In addition, carriers moving under the provisions of a single-trip routed permit (excluding manufactured housing) will not be routed on the main lanes of this segment when the width of the vehicle or load exceeds 16 feet. Further, a surety bond does not authorize the operator to transport solid waste or recyclable materials on IH14 in excess of the weights allowed without a surety bond. 

Continuous frontage roads are present on this 25-mile segment from West Business 190 in Killeen to IH35 in Belton. Frontage roads are not continuous between Killeen and Copperas Cove.
