State Highway 70 or SH 70 is a state highway that runs 315 miles (507 km) from Perryton to just south of Blackwell. SH 70 was originally designated by 1933 from Jayton to just northeast of San Angelo along a portion of SH 4, which had been shifted farther east. In 1938, the highway had been extended north from Jayton to Dickens, absorbing a portion of SH 18. Significant extension came in 1947, when SH 70 was extended to Perryton in the northern Panhandle, due to the rerouting of U.S. Highway 62 and the cancellation of SH 18. At the same time, the portion from just south of Blackwell to near San Angelo was transferred to U.S. Highway 277. This brought the route to its current designation.
