Route descriptionEdit

SH 127 begins in Sabinal at an intersection with US 90 and RM 187.[2] The highway travels north through Sabinal along Center Street, concurrent with RM 187, before separating from that route and turning toward the northwest. After crossing the Sabinal River, the highway travels through unincorporated Uvalde County, intersecting FM 30, FM 1049, and FM 2690.[3] The route crosses the Frio River at Concan before ending at a junction with US 83.[4]

HistoryEdit

The original SH 127 was designated on October 10, 1927[5][6] as a route from Cotulla eastward through Tilden to Oakville. It was officially numbered SH 127 on November 15, 1927.[7] On August 6, 1929, it extended northwest to SH 85. This route was cancelled on October 22, 1930, because La Salle county couldn't join the state to construct SH 2, so it was cancelled. This route was mostly restored starting in 1933-1934 as SH 202. The current route of SH 127 was then designated on June 11, 1932.[8]

Major intersectionsEdit

The entire route is in Uvalde County.
