U.S. Route 59 in Houston, Texas looking east.
U.S. Route 59, connects Texarkana to Laredo. It is also known as the Lloyd M. Bentsen Highway in honor of the late Democratic U.S. senator from Texas, who served from 1971—1992. This sign is located near Freer, the seat of Duval County east of Laredo.


In the U.S. state of Texas, U.S. 59 is named the Lloyd Bentsen Highway, after Lloyd Bentsen, former U.S. Senator from Texas. In northern Houston, US 59 is the Eastex Freeway. To the south, it is the Southwest Freeway, which is one of the busiest sections of freeway in the United States with a vehicle count, as of 2006, over 330,000 vehicles per day just outside the Loop.[2]

US 59 (overlapped by US 71) actually straddles the border between Texas and Arkansas north of Interstate 30 near Texarkana, with the east side of the highway in Arkansas and the west side of the highway on the Texas side. In the past, both highways remained on the border past I-30 as State Line Avenue to downtown Texarkana; today, only US 71 does so. Nearly 90% of this route is designated to become part of Interstate 69 in the future. Currently 75 mph is allowed on US 59 in Duval County only.

History

The US 96 designation was originally applied in 1926 from Rosenberg, Texas, near Houston to Pharr in the Rio Grande valley. This diagonal route, south of U.S. 90, did not violate the convention of even numbers for east–west routes. The highway's east–west nature was boosted in 1934 when US 96 was rerouted from Alice to Laredo.
