State Highway 222 or SH 222 is a state highway that runs 60 miles (97 km) through portions of north central Texas. The route was originally designated by 1928[3] between Knox City and Munday as SH 126, but was renumbered to SH 222 by 1936,[1] and extended due north to US 82, replacing SH 252.[4] The section north of Munday was transferred to FM 267 in 1948. In 1990, the route was extended to about five times its previous length, when sections were added from FM 143, FM 1587, FM 266, and FM 1720.
