Trans-PecosEdit

The entire section of US 180 through the Trans-Pecos region is concurrent with other highways.

US 180 enters into Texas from New Mexico concurrent with Interstate 10 and US 85. The three highways enter El Paso with US 85 leaving near Sunland Park Mall. I-10/US 180 run along the northern edge of downtown El Paso together, with US 180 leaving and joining U.S. Route 62. The two highways run along east El Paso on Montana Avenue, a major thoroughfare. The highways run along the southern border of El Paso International Airport and Fort Bliss, before intersecting with Loop 375, leaving the city shortly thereafter. After leaving the city, US 62/180 travel through or near several rural suburbs and subdivisions such as Homestead Meadows North, Homestead Meadows South, and Butterfield. The two highways briefly travel through the Guadalupe Mountains National Park near Pine Springs. US 62/180 enters New Mexico approximately 25 miles northwest of Pine Springs.

Northwest TexasEdit

US 62/180 enter back into the state between Hobbs, NM and Seminole. In Seminole, US 62 leaves the highway and joins U.S. Route 385. The highway shares a short overlap with U.S. Route 87 in Lamesa, before running through the towns of Gail and Snyder. US 180 continues to run in a predominately east-west direction through northwest Texas, passing through towns such as Breckenridge and Mineral Wells. US 180 ends at an interchange with Interstate 20 in Hudson Oaks, about 30 miles west of Fort Worth.
