Loop 286 is a loop highway around Paris, Texas . Parts of it are co-signed as U.S. Highway 82 and U.S. Highway 271. Loop 286 is mostly a divided highway with partially controlled access, but parts of it on the south side of town near State Highway 19 are still 2 lanes. In 2012, work is underway to construct a grade separation at FM 137, near the Kimberly-Clark plant on the southwest side of town.
Loop 286 forms part of the now-defunct Green Carpet Route that was supposed to stretch a 4-lane divided highway from Tulsa,Oklahoma to Houston, Texas. This project, started in the 1960s is still incomplete.
