About The Route In Texas

US 281 begins at the intersection of US 77 and SH 48 about two miles (3.2 km) from the border with Mexico. It runs along the border through the Rio Grande Valley, turning north to Hidalgo, passing through a number of small towns, alternating as a divided highway and main road, until it meets the I-37. It splits with I-37 and passes through Pleasanton, heading north to San Antonio. In San Antonio, US 281 overlaps I-410 on the south side of the city until the I-37 interchange. U.S. 281 andI-37 then cross north through downtown San Antonio before I-37 ends at I-35. US 281 heads north from downtown San Antonio as a freeway, intersecting I-410 on the north side of the city, with connections to San Antonio International Airport. A project to build a Stack Interchange atI-410(‘ San Antonio Web’) was completed on 9 June 2008; previously there was no direct access between the two freeways and the surface streets that travel between the freeways. East of San Antonio, the U.S. 281 is not a highway but forms the main street of Blanco. This overlaps with US 290 to the south of Johnson City. US 290 heads into Austin, and US 281 and US 290 between San Antonio and Austin are accessible as a scenic alternative toI-35. North of San Antonio, US 281 passes through central and north-central Texas, passing through many cities, including Stephenville, Mineral Wells and Jacksboro, until entering Wichita Falls, where theI-44 highway runs north across the Red River to Oklahoma.
