Farm to Market Road 1883 or FM 1883 is a two-lane, state-maintained highway that connects farming areas in south central Clay County with a spur connection of approx. 0.2-mile (0.32 km) to the small, unincorporated town of Deer Creek.

Route description[edit]

FM 1883 begins at an intersection with FM 172 in Clay County, heading south on a two-lane undivided road. The road heads south through open farmland with some trees, turning to the east. After passing through several miles of more rural areas, FM 1883 ends at an intersection with SH 148. East of here, the road becomes Lower Slobovia Road.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

FM 1883 was designated in 1953 from FM 172 southwest to Deer Creek, replacing a former portion of FM 172. Later that year, FM 1883 was rerouted to end at SH 148. In 1959, it was rerouted from 0.2 miles south of Deer Creek to FM 172, while the old route became a spur connection.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Bluegrove, Clay County.
