History[edit]

Hill County[edit]

Spur 117 was originally designated in 1941 as a spur connecting the town of Mount Calm 0.5 miles (0.8 km) to SH 31 in Hill County.[1] That designation ended in 1952 when the former Spur 117 was incorporated into FM 1662 as an extension to that route.[2] The following year, that route was combined with FM 737,[3] which in turn became an extension of the present FM 339 in 1971.[4]

Bexar County[edit]

Spur 117 was designated in 1980 along a stretch of road that had not previously held a state highway designation.[1]

Route description[edit]

Spur 117 begins at a junction with I-410 on the southeast side of San Antonio]. The spur heads northwest along W.W. White Road for 0.5 miles (0.8 km) before ending at Loop 13 (Military Drive). It is at this point where Loop 13 changes direction from heading east and west to north and south. W.W. White Road continues towards the north, but carries the Loop 13 designation instead.[5]

Major intersections[edit]
