U.S. Route 77 (US 77) is a part of the United States Numbered Highway System that runs from the Veterans International Bridge in Brownsville to Sioux City, Iowa. In Texas, the road runs south-north for 471.3 miles (758.5 km) from the International border with Mexico to the Oklahoma state line north of Gainesville. The highway is being upgraded to a freeway near Corpus Christi to connect to the freeway part of the highway in Raymondville as part of future I-69. A freeway in Robstown is already signed as part of I-69. From Waco to the Oklahoma state line, US 77 overlaps or runs parallel to I-35/I-35E.

Route description[edit]

The interchange between I-37 and US 77

US 77 crosses the Rio Grande with US 83 on the Veterans International Bridge. The two highways run together concurrent with I-69E until Harlingen. US 83 runs west (north) along I-2 to McAllen while US 77 runs north along with I-69E to Raymondville. The highway is only one to pass through Kenedy County. In Raymondville, I-69E ends.

In Robstown, US 77 again picks up the I-69E designation until the interchange with I-37 in north Corpus Christi. US 77 shares a short overlap with I-37 before leaving the highway. US 77 runs through many small to mid-size communities before arriving in Waco. Here, US 77 begans its overlap with I-35 that lasts until Hillsboro, where the highway then parallels I-35E until Red Oak.

US 77 has an unsigned overlap with I-35E until US 77 leaves the interstate in Corinth to serve Denton. The highway then returns to I-35 in north Denton until the two highways cross into Oklahoma together north of Gainesville.
