Historic SH 30

SH 30 was a route proposed in 1919 to run from Wichita Falls to Sabinal. The route remains mostly the same, with only the southern portion rerouted into Del Rio by 1926. By 1938, the highway was cancelled as U.S. Highway 277 was routed over its entirety from Del Rio to Wichita Falls.
