U.S. Route 277 (US 277) is an auxiliary route of US 77 that begins in Carrizo Springs. The highway is one of the longest in Texas, serving the cities of Del Rio, San Angelo, Abilene, and Wichita Falls. The highway exits into Oklahoma near Burkburnett, concurrent with I-44 and US 281. The highway shares numerous and lengthy overlaps with other US highways in the state.

Route description[edit]

The highway begins at an intersection with US 83 in Carrizo Springs, about 60 miles northwest of Laredo. The highway runs in an east-west direction, until reaching Eagle Pass. From here to Del Rio, the highway parallels the Rio Grande River at the U.S.-Mexico border. The highway overlaps US 377 for about 26 miles, with the highways passing the Amistad National Recreation Area.

US 277 crosses I-10 near Sonora, before traveling to Eldorado and eventually San Angelo. The highway overlaps both US 67 and US 87 in the city. In Abilene, the highway overlaps with US 83 and US 84, with the latter leaving shortly after. US 83 leaves in Anson, traveling to Aspermont, while US 277 travels to Stamford. In Seymour, US 82 begins an overlap with US 277. The two highways enter the city of Wichita Falls, with US 82 leaving the highway at US 281/US 287. US 277 joins US 281/287 and the three highways travel into the downtown area of the city, where I-44 begins. US 287 leaves the freeway, while I-44/US 277/US 281 travel to Burkburnett, before crossing the Red River into Oklahoma.

History[edit]

When US 277 was first commissioned, it ended at the U.S.-Mexico border in Del Rio. The highway was extended to its current terminus in 1952.[1] The section of highway through Wichita Falls was recently upgraded to a freeway. Known as Kell Boulevard, the freeway opened in late-2009/early-2010.

Bannered routes[edit]

US 277 has 8 business routes, which are all located in Texas.
