|Existed:||1951 – present|

The western terminus of RM 652 is in Culberson County at US 62 / US 180, near the Texas/New Mexico state line. The route travels east into Reeves County, intersecting US 285 at Orla. RM 652 then crosses the Pecos River into Loving County, before ending at Eddy County Rd. 1 at the Texas/New Mexico state line.
In 1945, FM 652 was originally assigned to a road to the north of Odessa in Ector County from SH 51(now US 385) to SH 302. Later that year, this assignment was canceled because it was already a part of SH 158.
In 1951, FM 652 was assigned to a 6.5-mile road from US 285 at Orla, northeastward to the Loving County line at the Pecos River. In 1956, it was extended northeastward 10.0 miles to its current eastern terminus at the Texas/New Mexico state line. In 1958, it was redesignated RM 652 and extended 53.0 miles westward from Orla to US 62 south of Pine Springs. In 1960, the western terminus was adjusted, so that RM 652 now met US 62 north approximately 10.0 miles northeast of Pine Springs. This shortened RM 652 by 5.5 miles. In 1975, the western terminus was moved to the northeast again, giving RM 652 its current western terminus. The 1960-defined section of RM 652 between US 62 and RM 1108 was cancelled, and the section of RM 1108 from US 62 near the Texas/New Mexico border southeastward 5.2 miles was transferred to RM 652.
