Route description[edit]

Approaching Spur 86 along eastbound Interstate 30.

Spur 86 begins at an intersection with US 82 at the main entrance to the Red River Army Depot in Whaley, Bowie County. From this point, the highway heads north as a four-lane undivided road through wooded areas with some development. Spur 86 comes to an interchange with I-30, where it ends.[1][2][3]


A previous routing of Spur 86 existed from 1940 to 1951, and connected SH 6 to the Administration Building of Texas A&M University (then known as A&M College) in Brazos County. This route was previously SH 224. The current incarnation of Spur 86 was designated in 1961.[1]
