State Highway 359 or SH 359 is a state highway that runs from Skidmoremarker in southeastern Texasmarker, near Corpus Christimarker, southwest and west to Laredomarker at the international border with Mexicomarker.

History

The 359 route designation was first used in 1946 for a short stretch of highway in Colemanmarker, but this designation was cancelled in 1947. The current State Highway 359 was designated in 1955 along the old US 59 route from Beevillemarker to Laredo. SH 359 covered essentially its present-day route, plus a co-routing with US 181 from Skidmore to Beeville. In 1960 the dual designation with US 181 from Skidmore to Beeville was removed, which made Skidmore the eastern terminus of SH 359.

Route description

The highway's eastern terminus is the intersection with US 181 at Skidmore. The route runs southwest through Tynanmarker to an intersection with Interstate 37 at Mathismarker. The route continues in a southwest direction past Lake Corpus Christimarker through Sandiamarker, Orange Grovemarker and Alfred until it reaches Alicemarker, where it is briefly co-routed with SH 44.

The route then diverges from SH 44 at San Diegomarker and continues southwest through Benavidesmarker and Realitosmarker to a junction with SH 16 at Hebbronvillemarker. Here the route takes a more western direction and runs through Brunimarker and Oiltonmarker before its final junction with US 83 at Laredo on the Mexican border. Counties traversed by the route include Beemarker, San Patriciomarker, Jim Wellsmarker, Duvalmarker, Jim Hoggmarker and Webbmarker. The highway is paved throughout and multi-lane for portions of the route. With the exception of its western terminus at Laredo, most of the terrain covered by the highway is sparsely populated and rural.
