U.S. 190

Home » Guides » Texas Highways » U.S. 190

U.S. 190 branches north from IH 10 in remote east Pecos County to start a 592-mile route across the Lone Star State. The rural highway heads ten miles northeast from the freeway to Iraan. The route bee lines east from there to Eldorado and Menard, before trending north to Brady, San Saba and Lampasas.

Through the Fort Hood area and the cities of Copperas Cove, Killeen, Horker Heights and Nolanville, U.S. 190 doubles as Interstate 14. IH 14 was established by the Texas Transportation Commission along a 25-mile stretch of U.S. 190 on January 27, 2017. Shields for the Interstate highway were posted starting in April 2017.

U.S. 190 overlaps with IH 35 north from the east end of IH 14 at Belton to the south side of Temple. The route drops southward from there to Cameron and Milano and northward again along side U.S. 79 to Hearne. U.S. 190 repeats the undulations to Bryan, Madisonville and Huntsville.

East of the 23-mile overlap with IH 45 to Huntsville, U.S. 190 traverses Sam Houston National Forest to Lake Livingston. The final 91 miles from Livingston connect the Polk County seat with Woodville, Jasper and Bon Wier at the Louisiana state line.
