State Highway 36 runs from Freeport to Abilene.[2] It was designated as the 36th Division Memorial Highway between Cameron and Sealy by the Texas Legislature in 1985.

History[edit]

Historic SH 36

SH 36 was originally proposed on November 21, 1917, as a route from Cisco to Waco.[3] On December 20, 1917, this became part of SH 18.[4]On November 20, 1917, an intercounty Highway was designated from Goldthwaite to Temple.[5] On January 24, 1918, the intercounty highway extended to Cameron.[6] On March 18, 1918, the intercounty highway extended to Brenham.[7] On March 20, 1918, SH 36 was designated as a route from Goldthwaite to Hearne.[8] On January 23, 1919, SH 36 was extended to Richmond, and the old route had been changed to SH 36A.[9] On March 19, 1919, SH 36 extended to Freeport.[10] On August 21, 1923, the sections from Temple to Goldthwaite and Richmond to Freeport were cancelled, while SH 36 had been shortened to end in Temple. [11] On January 16, 1928, SH 36 extended back to Freeport.[12] On September 19, 1929, SH 36 was extended northwest to Hamilton.[13] On December 18, 1932, the route was extended to Rising Star.[14] On February 10, 1933, the section from Rising Star to Comanche was cancelled.[15] On July 10, 1933, the route was extended yet again to its current terminus in Abilene.[16] On July 15, 1935, the sections from Temple to Gatesville and from Rising Star to Abilene were cancelled.[17] On October 4, 1935, the section from Cross Plains to Comanche was cancelled.[18] On January 21, 1936, the section from Abilene to Cross Plains was cancelled.[19] On September 22, 1936, the section from Abilene to SH 191 was restored.[20] By 1937, the section from north of Temple to Gatesville was cancelled. This section was restored on April 28, 1937.[21] By 1939, SH 36 had been rerouted over State Highway 221 south of Temple. On August 31, 1939, the section from SH 191 to Rising Star was restored, but the section from Rising Star to Northwest of Comanche was cancelled.[22] On December 10, 1946, the section from Rising Star to northwest of Comanche was restored. Only minor route changes to bypass Brenham on June 4, 1964, Temple on January 24, 1978, and Freeport on January 28, 1985 were made.

Historic SH 36A

SH 36A was a spur route of SH 36 designated on January 23, 1919, splitting off at Cameron and traveling east to Hearne.[23] On August 21, 1923, the route had been renumbered as SH 69.[24] An alternate routing just south of Temple, serving the town of Heidenheimer, was designated on May 25, 1925.[25] It was redesignated on September 18, 1929, from Temple to Valley Mills.[26] On March 19, 1930, it was renumbered as SH 153. The alternate route of SH 36 through Heidenheimer was changed to SH 36A by 1933. By 1936, the route had been renumbered State Highway 221.

Historic SH 36B

SH 36B was a spur route of the original routing of SH 36 designated on July 20, 1920, splitting off at Lampasas and travelling southeast to Georgetown.[27] On January 15, 1923, it extended to Brady.[28] On August 21, 1923, it had been renumbered as SH 74.[29]

Proposed future Alternate 36[edit]

A group calling itself the Highway 36A Coalition has proposed a new highway (tentatively titled Highway 36A) which would run between Highway 36 at Pleak and another planned route in Waller County (the proposed Prairie Parkway), ultimately connecting to Texas State Highway 6 north of Hempstead. According to the Coalition, the new highway would be limited access (along with improvements to the existing Highway 36 between Freeport and Pleak) and provide a western bypass of the Greater Houston area (as well as a new hurricane evacuation corridor).[30]
