State Highway 86 or SH 86 is a state highway in the U.S. state of Texas that runs 149 miles (240 km) from Texico to Estelline. This route was designated on August 21, 1923 as the renumbered SH 5A.[2] On September 17, 1923, the section from Estelline to Turkey was cancelled, as SH 18 extended northeast from Turkey to Memphis.[3] By 1929, it was shortened to Bovina as it was constructed on that route instead. It has travelled its present course since then, except for the addition of the northern portion of SH 18 between Turkey and Estelline on December 22, 1936.[4]
