State Highway 108 or SH 108 is a state highway that runs from Strawn to Stephenville.

Route description[edit]

SH 108 begins at an intersection with SH 16 in downtown Strawn, and travels east out of town on Housley Street. The highway turns south in Mingus, where it intersects SH 193. South of Mingus, the highway intersects and briefly travels east with Interstate 20. The route then departs to the southeast, where it reaches Stephenville. The route intersects U.S. Routes 67 and 377 in Stephenville, before reaching its southern terminus at U.S. Route 281 just south of Stephenville.

Route history[edit]

SH 108 was originally designated on March 16, 1925 from Thurber to Stephenville, along with an extension southward to Lampasas.[2] On June 22, 1925, a branch to Chalk Mountain was added.[3] On July 13, 1925, south to San Antonio, with one section replacing a section of SH 46.[4] By 1930, the branch was removed. In 1931, the section south of Strawn was redesignated as the new state-length SH 66. SH 108 has followed the same routing since that time.

State Highway 108A was a spur routing of SH 108 that led from Lampasas east through Temple to Rosebud. The route was designated on March 16, 1925.[5] On March 19, 1930, the route had been renumbered as SH 53.
