Route description[edit]

SH 193 begins at an intersection with SH 108 in Mingus, Palo Pinto County, heading east on a two-lane undivided road. The road passes a few homes and leaves Mingus, running to the south of a Union Pacific railroad line as it heads through areas of fields. The highway heads into wooded areas and turns northeast, becoming West Cedar Street. SH 193 curves east and enters Gordon, passing homes while continuing to the south of the railroad tracks. In the center of town, the road crosses FM 919 and becomes East Cedar Street. The highway leaves Gordon and turns southeast away from the Union Pacific line, passing through wooded areas with a few fields. SH 193 continues southeast to its eastern terminus at an interchange with I-20.[1][2][3]
