State Highway 206 or SH 206 is a Texas state highway running from US 67 near Coleman northeast to Cisco.

History[edit]

SH 206 was originally designated between 1933 and 1935, replacing a section of SH 23 between Coleman and Rising Star. In 1939, the section between Cross Plains and Rising Star was transferred to SH 36. The route was slowly extended northeast from Cross Plains to what is now Interstate 20 between 1960 and 1963. The route was extended into Cisco in 1991, replacing US 80 when it was decommissioned.
