Farm to Market Road 989 (FM 989, locally known as Kings Highway) is a farm-to-market road that exists completely within Bowie County, Texas. It is mostly located to the west of Texarkana. It travels approximately 11.84 miles (19.05 km) south to north.

Route description[edit]

History[edit]

FM 989 was originally designated on November 23, 1948 with a northern terminus at U.S. Route 82 (US 82) in Nash and a southern terminus at US 59, approximately 0.5 miles (0.80 km) southwest of the Loop, a total length of 4.2 miles (6.8 km). However, on October 28, 1953, it was extended to include a 5.4-mile (8.7 km) loop and connect with FM 559 northwest of Texarkana. On September 20, 1961, FM 989 was extended again, picking up an additional 3.1 miles (5.0 km) on the south end, to connect to FM 2516. In 1995, the entire route of FM 989 was transferred to Urban Road 989, but this is an internal designation used by TXDOT and the road is still signed as FM 989.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Bowie County.
