State Highway 62 or SH 62 is a highway located in southeastern Texas.

Route description[edit]

Highway 62 begins at SH 73 and SH 87 between Orange and Bridge City. SH 73 is concurrent with SH 62 from the southern terminus to the intersection with Interstate 10 and U.S. Highway 90, where SH 73 ends. SH 62 continues its northward journey past this point, going through Mauriceville and Texla in Orange County, clipping the extreme southwest corner of Newton County, and, in Jasper County, travelling through the small community of Gist and ending at Buna.

This route was designated by 1926 along its current route, with a small extension over FM 406 between Highway 73 and US 90 in 1962.
