Farm to Market Road 2606 (FM 2606) is a farm to market road in Clay County, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

FM 2606 is a two-lane route for its entire length. Its western terminus is at FM 1954 near the entrance to Lake Arrowhead State Park. The route travels to the east, past the north edge of Lake Arrowhead and across the Wichita Falls Dam on a load-zoned bridge. It winds around the northeastern edge of the lake before veering to the northeast at an intersection with Bunny Run Road. The route turns to the east near its eastern terminus at FM 2847, which provides access to Henrietta.[2][1]

History[edit]

Two previous unrelated routes have been given the FM 2606 designation. The first FM 2606 was designated in Rusk County in 1960 from SH 322 in Elderville to FM 1716; that route was canceled the same year, with the mileage transferred to FM 2011. The second route to bear the route number was in Williamson County from US 81 northeast 5.6 miles; it was designated in 1960. The next year, the east end was relocated, adding 0.2 miles; that designation was cancelled in 1967, when it was combined with FM 971.[1]

The current FM 2606 was designated in 1968. The original route was the section from FM 2847 to the east edge of the bridge across the Wichita Falls Dam. The designation was extended across the dam and to FM 1954 in 1979, bringing the route to its current length.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Clay County.
