SH 6 is one of Texas' most important state highways, connecting Oklahoma with the Gulf Coast near Galveston along a 557 mile alignment.
Construction along the concurrent section of SH 6 and SL 340 through Waco and Robinson converts more of the highway to limited access standards. The project includes a grade separation for Old Robinson Road, widening of the road to four lanes across new bridges over the Brazos River and a Union Pacific Railroad line, and continuous frontage roads from IH 35 to U.S. 77. Work on the $22.3 million project started in March 2016 and runs through the fall of 2018.1,2
