Farm to Market Road 175 (FM 175) is a farm to market road in Jack and Clay counties, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

The western terminus of FM 175 is in northwestern Jack County at Loop 187, the former alignment of US 281 through Antelope.[2][3] The two-lane road travels to the east, then the north, and again to the east before entering Clay County. It passes through the community of Shannon before reaching its eastern terminus at SH 148.[1][4]

History[edit]

FM 175 was designated from SH 148 to Shannon in 1945. It was extended to US 281 (now Loop 187) in Antelope in 1954, replacing FM 2063 from the Clay/Jack County Line to US 281.[1]
