Texas State Highway 155 (SH 155) is a highway in the U.S. state of Texas. It runs from Palestine to Linden as a mostly divided highway by way of Tyler.

From Palestine to Linden, SH 155 is part of the Blue Star Memorial Highway.

Route description[edit]

SH 155 begins at US 79 / SH 19 in Palestine northeastward via Frankston to SH 64 at Tyler; and from another point on SH 64 northward to junction of US 271 and SH 31; and then from a point on US 271 northeast of Tyler, northeastward via Big Sandy, Gilmer, Avinger to US 59 (Future I-369) at Linden, a total approximate distance of 123.4 miles (198.6 km).[2][3]

Nearly the entire route is a divided highway. One of the sole remaining two-lane segments is a 9.5-mile (15.3 km) stretch extending from Frankston to Pert, however starting in early 2007, the right of way was being cleared and graded for the eventual upgrade to a divided highway.[citation needed] The route is concurrent with US 271 on two separate sections in the city of Tyler and the town of Gilmer.

History[edit]

SH 155 was originally designated by 1931 on a route from Gilmer to Marshall. By 19388, it extended southwest to Tyler. By 1939, the section from Marshall to Gilmer was transferred to SH 154 when it was extended east from Quitman. The route was extended south to Palestine and north to Linden in 1944, completing the current route.
