U.S. Route 67 is a major U.S. highway in the state of Texas. It runs from the US-Mexico Border south of Presidio to Texarkana at the Texas-Arkansas border. US 67 is part of the La Entrada al Pacifico international trade corridor from its southern terminus to US 385 in McCamey.

Route Description[edit]

US-Mexico Border to Interstate 10[edit]

US 67 enters Texas from Mexico as Federal Highway 16 south of Presidio. US 67 travels miles between Chinati Mountains State Natural Area and Big Bend Ranch State Park. US 67 shares an overlap with US 90 from Marfa to Alpine. Leaving US 90, US 67 travels north towards I-10. US 67 shares an overlap with I-10 for almost 25 miles. In Fort Stockton, US 385 joins this overlap. US 67/385 leave I-10 just east of Fort Stockton.

US 67 in Presidio has the highest mile marker posted on any highway (994).[citation needed]

Interstate 10 to San Angelo[edit]

US 67 leaves I-10 with US 385 and the two share an overlap until McCamey. US 67 travels in a mostly east-west direction towards San Angelo. US 67 travels though mostly rural areas, passing through or near the towns of Rankin, Big Lake, and Mertzon. In San Angelo, parts of US 67 are known as the Houston Harte Expressway, named after the San Angelo-native publishing magnate. US 67 starts a short overlap with US 277 in San Angelo along the Houston Harte. Along with State Loop 306, Houston Harte is part of the Trans-Texas Corridor, which has an overall goal to build a four-lane divided highway from San Angelo to Del Rio (ultimately from Canada to Mexico), to provide easy truck routing through the United States.[citation needed]

San Angelo to Stephenville[edit]

US 67 ends its overlap with US 277 northeast of San Angelo. US 67 travels towards Ballinger and has an overlap with US 83. Between the towns of Santa Anna and Stephenville, US 67 shares overlaps with US highways 84, 183, and 377. The overlap with US 377 starts in Brownwood and ends in south east Stephenville.

Stephenville to Dallas[edit]

US 67 leaves Stephenville and travels to Glen Rose, the location of Dinosaur Valley State Park. US 67 then travels to Cleburne, where the western half of the bypass is a 4 lane freeway and the eastern half is a two-lane highway. US 67 travels through the towns of Keene, Alvarado, and Venus before entering Midlothian, where a freeway begins that travels all the way to I-35E in Dallas. US 67 shares an unsigned overlap with I-35E/US 77 to Downtown Dallas, where US 67 leaves I-35E and joins I-30.

Dallas to Greenville[edit]

US 67 shares an unsigned overlap with I-30 that starts in Downtown Dallas. The two highways travel through east Dallas, Mesquite, and Garland, Texas before crossing over Lake Ray Hubbard, twice. After the second crossing, the highways enter Rockwall. In Royse City, US 67 signage begins. The highways then arrive in Greenville.

Greenville to Texarkana[edit]

US 67 in Omaha

US 67 travels through Sulphur Springs, before leaving I-30 east of town. US 67 then parallels I-30, occasionally crossing the highway. US 67 passes though the towns of Mount Vernon, and Mount Pleasant. East of Mount Pleasant, US 67 travels miles south of I-30 traveling through Morris County. US 67 travels on the south border of the Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant, before arriving in Texarkana. US 67 travels to downtown where it enters Arkansas at State Line Avenue (US 71/US 82).

Bannered routes[edit]

US 67 has business routes in Presidio, two in San Angelo, Cleburne, Alvarado, and Sulphur Springs. An additional business route has been proposed for Dublin, and Midlothian and Greenville formerly had business routes. These routes largely follow former alignments through these cities before US 67 bypasses were constructed.
