Spur 122 is a 5.664-mile (9.115 km) spur route in the U.S. state of Texas that follows a former route of U.S. Highway 181 (US 181) in San Antonio. Spur 122 follows Presa Street from US 181 near the city limits on the southeast side of San Antonio towards the northwest ending at Loop 13 just east of the San Antonio River. The spur provides access to Mission San Francisco de la Espada and other parks along the banks of the San Antonio River.
Spur 122 follows the original routing of U.S. Highway 181 on the southeast side of San Antonio. US 181 was first designated along this stretch in 1927. In 1974, when US 181 was shortened to Interstate 37 (I-37), the old segment was redesignated as Spur 122.
Spur 122 begins near the city limits on the southeast side of San Antonio at US 181. The spur heads northwest along Presa Street passing under I-37. The road continues towards the northwest passing over I-410 before turning towards the north to parallel the San Antonio River to its west. This portion of the San Antonio River has several parks along its banks to include the Acequia Park, Espada Park and the Mission San Francisco de la Espada. The highway also passes near the western boundary of Brooks City-Base, a former U.S. Air Force installation. The spur ends at an intersection with Loop 13 (Military Drive).
