HistoryEdit

The original route with the Loop 3 designation was established on September 26, 1939, as a loop of US 81 in New Braunfels as a renumbering of SH 2 Bypass. A portion of that route became part of SH 46 during that route's extension on September 16, 1960, and the remainder was deleted from the state highway system on November 5, 1971. The current routing of Spur 3 was designated on February 23, 1993.[1]

The entire route is in Corpus Christi, Nueces County.
