State Highway 152 or SH 152 is a Texas state highway that runs from Dumas east to the Oklahoma border. The route was originally designated circa 1933 between Pampa and Wheeler, but was extended both west (replacing State Highway 209 from Pampa to Borger) and east to its current termini in 1938.

Route description[edit]

SH 152 begins at an intersection with an intersection with US 87 and US 287 in Dumas, and travels east through farmland along the outside northern edge of the Canadian River valley. It reaches large oil reserves before reaching Stinnett and an intersection with Texas State Highway 136 and Texas State Highway 207. All three routes travel south out of Stinnett 10 miles to Borger. The route continues southeast through oil country before returning to fertile farmlands just west of Pampa, where it joins up with U.S. Route 60. The two routes continue east out of Pampa for about 10 miles before SH 152 splits off and continues due east. The route continues east, reaching an intersection with US Route 83 in Wheeler, before crossing into Oklahoma onto State Highway 152 near Sweetwater, Oklahoma.

Route history[edit]

SH 152 was first designated in 1933 as the route between Pampa and Wheeler through northern Gray and Wheeler Counties. It was a renumbering of SH 33A as the state began removing spur designations from state routes. In 1938 the route was extended east from Wheeler to the Oklahoma state line, and was extended west to Borger, as a renumbering of State Highway 209. The route was also designated north concurrent with then-State Highway 117 until they reached Stinnett, where the route would be extended west to Dumas. The road to Dumas already existed, but was not fully improved until the late 1940s.
