Spur 164 is a state highway spur near Tyler in unincorporated Smith County, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

Spur 164 is a two-lane roadway that is signed as Greenbriar Road; the road continues past both of Spur 164's termini as County Road 1125. State maintenance begins at Greenbriar Lake Road, approximately a half-mile north of an intersection with Spur 364. The southern terminus is also at the entrance to the now-defunct Tyler State Fish Hatchery. The highway travels north, crossing the Union Pacific Railroad before ending at SH 31.[2]

History[edit]

The road was designated as SH 140 by 1933. By 1935, the road was removed from the state highway system. Spur 164 was designated in 1945; its southern end has always been at its current location, as its purpose was to connect SH 31 to the Tyler State Fish Hatchery.[1] Spur 364 was designated in 1962, but the Spur 164 designation was never extended to that route.[3] The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department ceased maintaining the Hatchery in 1998; however, TxDOT continues to maintain the route.[4]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Smith County.
